Deron Williams has an MRI scheduled for Friday. He said he will look at options and consider having offseason ankle surgery if the doctor recommends it.
Considering the problems his ankle has given him, surgery sounds like the right move for Williams. The soon-to-be-30-year-old had a disappointing statistical season, averaging 14.3 points and 6.1 assists - both the lowest since his rookie season in 2005-06.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Henry Walker scored 12 points, grabbed nine rebounds, recorded five assists, and four steals in the Heat 99-86 loss to the Hawks on Friday night.
The artist formerly known as “Bill Walker” had one of his better performances of the season, as he stuffed the stat sheet in every conceivable fashion on Friday night. He scored 12 points, grabbed nine boards, recorded five assists, and four steals, all in the name of diversifying his efforts and tying to help the Heat get into the win column. Unfortunately the Hawks proved to be too much for Miami, as they rolled them 99-86. Only consider Walker in daily leagues, were he can be bought on the cheap. Analysis: Dom Murtha
