Deron Williams confirmed that his ankles finally feel good again. He may actually get to practice and participate in training camp.

Williams has been a steady diet for the injury bug during his time spent in Brooklyn. Last season, the ankle injury limited him to just 64 games, but the offseason surgery has seemingly given the 30-year old some new life. Obviously we'll have to just wait and see how he does through camp and a long season, but so far, at least from Williams, things sound like they're headed in the right direction.

Coach Lionel Hollins says Kevin Garnett will start this season.

Hollins loves players that are elite defenders and that is exactly what K.G. is. His fantasy value is limited though because his minutes will be limited and is not the same type of player he was a few years ago.

Shaun Livingston says his surgically repaired toe "feels great."

Livingston had sprained his toe a while back, but it wasn't healing properly. Surgery helped to correct that and now he's on the road to recovery. The surgery was in mid-August and the recovery timetable was 6-to-8 weeks. Based on reports, he should be back in camp this year with plenty of time to prepare for the regular season.

Brook Lopez (foot) said he continues to improve everyday, increasingly getting in shape and regaining his wind. 

Lopez is expected to be ready for training camp this season and should be drafted as if the offseason recovery was a non-issue. He'll be just fine.

Mason Plumlee said he expects to get word on whether he made Team USA on Saturday.

Plumlee has performed well and is considered very likely to make the team when the roster is cut down to 12 men. Plumlee, the Nets backup center, was a long shot to make the final team but has exceeded expectations for team USA.

Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez, who has been rehabbing after undergoing foot and ankle surgery, told reporters in Russia that he has been fully cleared for play.

This is great news for Brook Lopez who has apparently been "fully cleared for play and everything." Lopez has not played since December 20th because of a fracture in his foot. The Nets got to see more of Mason Plumlee than they would of liked last season but he did step up his game late in the season. Plumlee will give Lopez some much needed rest during games and will hopefully limit his risk for another lengthy injury.

Nets announce the signing of second round pick Cory Jefferson to a multi-year contract. 

Jefferson looked good in Summer League play, but he has a ways to go before the Nets envision him as anything more that just a reserve player who may or may not kick in a few minutes late in the games. Still he does have enough potential to make owners in deep dynasty leagues pay attention to him.

Nets announce the signing of second round pick Markel Brown to a multi-year contract. 

The Nets envision Brown being an outstanding asset off the bench this year as someone who can handle guarding both guard positions and possibly be a strong three-point shooter when they need. He still has some aspects of his game that need some refining, but he's a project the team is anxious to take on.
