Possible Deron William Concerns?

Postby RedHopeful » Sun Oct 28, 2012 2:35 am

Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams believes he "might" need surgery after the 2012-13 season to "clean up" his left ankle.

Williams has missed the last two practices due to inflammation in his left ankle, or what the Nets are calling left ankle synovitis. He received a cortisone shot on Thursday to ease the pain and will return to practice on Sunday. It's something he's going have to manage all season.

The point guard told reporters that he's been dealing with the injury since the Olympics.

"It started hurting in the Olympics. I was hurting really bad in the Olympics, it swelled up pretty good during the Olympics, so I had to get on some anti-inflammatories," Williams said in a video posted on the team's official website.

"We've been trying to strengthen it and do things to get it loose, but just throughout the course of a game it never gets loose. I thought it was just from old age.

"I couldn't jump off my left leg. I can't even dunk off one leg, so I went in and got an MRI and it showed the inflammation."
