Deron Williams Likely Back Tuesday
Williams has missed the last eight straight games due to a sprained left ankle — 10 overall with the injury. The Nets are 2-8 without Williams in the lineup.
He originally hurt his ankle Nov. 15 in Phoenix, which caused him to miss two games. He returned Nov. 20 in Charlotte, aggravated the injury, and hasn’t played since.
