In playing his second game for Besiktas, Deron Williams scored 21 points and dished out 5 assists. Not a bad showing, without knowing the playbook entirely mind you.
However, Despite a stellar performance from their star, Besiktas fell to the Russian team Spartak 76-67 in an exhibition. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
Williams later tweeted that he fell on his wrist during the game, but felt no pain afterwards. Williams’ right wrist had been a problem late last season, causing him to miss 13 of the Nets’ final 25 games. He underwent surgery on the wrist this summer, and it looks like he is already back up to full speed. However, more scares like this can only be troublesome. If Williams does hurt the wrist that took so long to repair, I can only ask “was it worth it?”
