Here are the details:
Following an MRI on Monday, January 6, Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams was diagnosed with a sprained left ankle. Williams was treated with a cortisone shot in the ankle joint, as well as platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections into the lateral ligaments of the ankle. In addition, Williams received a PRP injection into his right ankle and a cortisone injection into his right ankle joint to relieve inflammation. Williams, who will miss Wednesday’s game versus Golden State, is currently in a walking boot and will be re-evaluated at the end of the week.
This certainly doesn't sound good for a return to action anytime in the near future. If there is some good news in all of this, the Nets play just four more times between now and January 20 -- with the team playing in London next week.
We'll have more details later in the week when we have more information.
