Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams is scheduled to undergo surgery on both ankles on Tuesday, May 27, General Manager Billy King announced.
As soon as the Nets were knocked out of the playoffs, Williams explored the possibility of immediate surgery. He is expected to make a full recovery, but there is no timetable for his return or what his recovery plan will be. That will obviously be determined post-op, once the doctors have had a chance to see what's what on the inside.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Indians optioned P Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus.
Tomlin has some upside if he can repeat his 8.13 K/9 from last season, but home runs will likely always be an issue. Tomlin has allowed 1.41 HR/9 over his big league career, far too high for him to be a consistent fantasy producer. He will almost certainly be in the rotation at some point and could even get the call up before Danny Salazar even though Salazar has far more upside for fantasy. Analysis: Steve Pimental
