Deron Williams sprains right ankle

Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams sprained his right ankle and suffered a bone bruise while working out at his Utah residence, but will be ready for training camp, according to the Brooklyn Nets. Williams was fitted for a walking boot.

Williams has had numerous problems with his ankles in the last year, saying that they “felt like s—“ and undergoing multiple cortisone and platelet-rich plasma treatments on both ankles. He was diagnosed with synovitis in February leading into the All-Star break, which prompted the plasma treatment.

The injury, though not serious, will almost assuredly keep Williams out of his DODGE BARRAGE Celebrity Dodgeball Tournament tomorrow, where he is scheduled to speak with the media.

The Nets begin training camp at Duke University on October 1st.
