Deron Williams leaves Nets-Cavs with calf injury, will get MRI

Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams left the second quarter of Nets-Cavs Friday night with an injury to his calf, getting walked to the locker room by Nets trainer Tim Walsh.

Williams told reporters after the game that he originally felt calf tightness in the first quarter, and will get an MRI Saturday to look at the calf:

It was not immediately clear what the injury was, as Williams did not suffer any contact or bend awkwardly. But Williams immediately asked to be waved off, and as of halftime, had not returned from the locker room. The Nets announced shortly after halftime that Williams had suffered a strained right calf, and would not return to the game. His status beyond tonight’s game is uncertain.
