Deron Williams is OUT for Sunday's game vs. the Pistons

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams will not play on Sunday night against the Detroit Pistons. Williams, who has started in all 25 of the Nets' games this season, received an MRI this weekend on his strained calf, an injury he sustained on Friday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

He is listed as day-to-day, missing his first game of the 2014-15 season.

Jarrett Jack will make his first start of the season for the Nets, while Brooklyn will also be without Brook Lopez (back).

Williams has been a part of trade rumors which include the team said to be having conversations with the Sacramento Kings about acquiring Williams.

The Nets, who are 10-15 on the season, look to beat the 5-22 Detroit Pistons on Sunday night without two of their cornerstone players. The game starts at 6:00 PM eastern.
