Injury Update: Deron Williams will not play vs. Kings

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Deron Williams has missed the Nets' five last games due to a fractured rib cartilage. Now, he will miss a sixth, as the team announced that he will not play on Wednesday when they suit up against the Sacramento Kings.

Williams is doing some light conditioning and shooting drills, and he's also traveling with the team which doesn't put him out of play for the remainder of the three-game road trip.

So, it is possible that Williams will be able to play later this week. It will be none too soon for Mirza Teletovic.

“Deron Wililams is the most important thing for us,” Teletovic told Andy Vasquez. “Rhythm-wise, and getting the spacing right, and playing faster.

"D-Will, for me, is unbelievable. It’s [been] a big loss for this team. … For me, I’d say he’s 40 percent of the team.”

Stay tuned for more updates.
