Deron Williams a game-time decision

Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams is a game-time decision for the Friday afternoon game against the Boston Celtics after missing two straight games with a low-grade left calf strain, Lionel Hollins said to reporters today.

Jarrett Jack will start regardless of Williams’s status. Jack has averaged scored 32 points and dished out 18 assists over the two games in Williams’s absence.
