Deron Williams OUT tonight against the Hawks

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sport

BROOKLYN - Jason Kidd announced that Deron Williams (ankle) will not play tonight against the Atlanta Hawks.

As noted, Alan Anderson will start in place of Williams. Again, Kidd said they are being "cautious" with Williams' ankles after it "swelled up" last night. Williams did say that he "wanted to play," but Kidd made it clear that the team did not want to risk it.

Update: Yes, the Nets have recalled Tyshawn Taylor from Springfield, after re-assigning him there earlier in the day.
