Jarrett Jack will start in place of Deron Williams (calf) against the Pistons on Sunday.

This is Jack's first start of the season, and he is worth a pickup in most leagues while Williams is out.

The Brooklyn Nets and Sacramento Kings have discussed a package that would send point guard Deron Williams to the Sacramento Kings, according to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

It is all speculation right now, but a trade similar to this could occur soon. Keep an eye on the trade talks, as some fantasy worthy players could be shifted around.

Brooks Lopez has begun light basketball activities. He remains out for Sunday and will be reevaluated daily until he is ready to return.

He has been ruled out of action for the Sunday game against the Pistons, meaning the soonest he would return is Tuesday against the Nuggets at home. In his absence, Kevin Garnett and Mason Plumlee will see continued action in the Brooklyn frontcourt.

Deron Williams (calf) is not practicing Saturday.

He suffered a low-grade strain to his right calf in Friday night's game. With him not in the lineup, Jarrett Jack will see more time as starter at the point.

Mason Plumlee scored 14 points (5-9 FGA) with nine rebounds, two assists, and three blocks in the Nets' 95-91 loss to Cleveland.

Plumlee continued his outstanding month of December since being inserted into the starting lineup with another performance just shy of a double-double, a mark he would have likely hit if he did not get into foul trouble early. Plumlee will remain a must start, especially in daily leagues where he performs way above his price tag.

Joe Johnson scored 26 points (10-18 FGA, 4-9 3PA) with four rebounds, five assists, two steals, and one block in the Nets' 95-91 loss to Cleveland.

Johnson has continued to reserve a large role in the Nets' offense, averaging 18.6 points and 3.0 three-pointers a game over the last five games. Look for a big game Sunday against the Pistons, a team that has just been imploding this season.

Jarrett Jack scored 13 points (6-11 FGA, 1-2 3PA) with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in the Nets' 95-91 loss to Cleveland.

Jack came off the bench to replace an injured Deron Williams and managed to score a solid 13 points with four rebounds and three assists. Jack has been a very inconsistent scorer this season, especially in December, but if Williams misses time, look for a lot more scoring opportunity.

Deron Williams (calf) will be going for an MRI Saturday.

Williams logged just 10 minutes on the floor with one point and five assists. Consider him day-to-day for now and await the results of his MRI. Calf strains are usually at least a few games, but we'll wait for tests rather than hit you with worst-case scenarios.

Update: Deron Williams strained his right calf and will not return.

Williams limped to the locker room due to a strained right calf, and he will miss the remainder of Friday;s game at the least. He'll be evaluated for the severity of the injury, which will give us a better look at his timetable for return.
