Brooklyn Nets star Deron Williams said he will return to the court on Monday, after missing almost two weeks with a sparined left ankle, according to Andy Vasquez of New Jersey Record.

Williams has been out since early January after re-injuring his left ankle, which caused him to miss time last season as well. Williams received cortisone and platelet-rich plasma shots in both ankles as treatment for the injury, according to ESPN.
