UPDATES & NEWS
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
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
