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
Tyson Chandler will not play Sunday.
Chandler sat out on Wednesday and only played four minutes on Friday. Alex Len has seen some extra minutes at center in Chandler's absence, but he's hasn't played more than 16 minutes in either game. Phoenix is likely to go with a mix of forwards for more of a small ball look without Chandler. Analysis: Brett Talley
