Nets' Deron Williams says he will play Monday
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.
The Nets are 9-13 this season with Williams in the line up, but have won of 4 of their last 5 since he was sidelined.
Brooklyn will take on their crosstown rivals the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Monday afternoon.
