“It’s manageable,” King repeated. “A lot of players have had them. Don’t read too much into it. It’s not that big of a deal. I know it’s Deron, but there’s a lot of players that have had it, and they get it cleaned out. … It’s not a problem.”

Williams said yesterday that he has bone spurs in his ankle but it felt “like new” after a cortisone shot.
