Deron Williams scored 18 points in a 122-118 triple-overtime loss to the Bucks on Wednesday, adding five boards, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 52 minutes.

The Nets really needed this game and played their guys big minutes, but it didn't work and they now have a five-game losing streak. Williams is playing just fine and has been a top-30 player so far this season. He could be considered as a sell-high guy just because of the injury risk.

Deron Williams was critical of the Nets lack of ball movement.

When D-Will was told the Nets ranked 26th in the league in assists per game going into Sunday's loss, he responded with "I think that's a big problem." He added, "If we're moving the ball, sharing the ball -- if you look at our wins, we've passed the ball relatively well." It's not quite Joe Johnson's "selfish," but D-Will is making sure his voice is heard.
Nov 17 - 9:16 AM

Deron Williams made 7-of-14 from the field for 18 points against the Warriors in a 107-99 loss to go with four rebounds, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

He's been over 50 percent from the field in each of his last five games, averaging 19.6 points, 3.0 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.8 triples on 55.2 percent from the field and 78.9 percent from the field in that span. Williams is on a roll and just needs to stay healthy.
Nov 14 - 1:45 AM

Deron Williams logged a team-high 40 minutes during Sunday's win, scoring 18 points while adding seven assists, four rebounds, two steals, and two turnovers.

Williams has looked great so far this season, and the heavy minutes suggest that his ankle issues are now behind him. He is currently averaging 19.8 points, 7.0 assists, 1.4 three-pointers, and 0.8 steals while playing 37 minutes a game. Owners who gambled on him in the middle rounds have to be feeling pretty good right now as he's currently putting up early-third round value.
Nov 9 - 7:01 PM

Deron Williams made the Knicks look silly on defense on Friday with 29 points, one rebound, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He was fantastic off the dribble and crossed up Iman Shumpert all night. His ankle problems look to be behind him and he enters tonight with averages of 17.5 points, 2.5 boards, 7.3 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.3 triples. Williams' shot hasn't even been falling, so he's looking like he'll destroy his ADP if he can stay healthy.
Nov 8 - 1:39 AM

Deron Williams scored 17 points in his 37 minutes of action against the Thunder on Monday with three rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He made all eight attempts from the line and 4-of-8 from the field, which is nice to see since he only made 37.1 percent from the field in his first two games. Williams said today that he's dealing with some soreness in his ankles, so his owners shouldn't be expecting him to play in 82 games.
Nov 3 - 11:11 PM

Deron Williams said on Monday that he sometimes feels some soreness in his ankles.

He said he isn't dealing with pain, which bothered him last season. Williams has played 40.0 minutes per game in the first two contests this season and has struggled shooting the rock. Fantasy owners knew what they were getting themselves into with Williams on their team, so he'll remain a risky asset.
Nov 3 - 7:44 PM

Deron Williams is shooting a combined 13-of-35 through the first two games, but said that the light wrap around his right wrist isn't the reason.

"I think it’s just rhythm," Williams said. "I don’t really want to talk about what’s going on. As long as I’m out there playing, I’m playing. That’s all that matters." However, he was able to play 41 minutes on Saturday and it looks like both of his ankles are in great shape, much to the relief of his owners. Williams will always be an injury risk, but as long as he is healthy he needs to be in all lineups.
Nov 2 - 9:26 AM

Deron Williams logged a game-high 41 minutes of action vs. the Pistons on Saturday, scoring 15 points with one 3-pointer, two rebounds, six assists and one block.

He wasn't particularly efficient, shooting 7-of-19 with zero FT attempts, but he also had zero turnovers despite his gaudy playing time. His troublesome ankles will be a concern all season, but so far they've been a non-factor despite his 40.0 minute-per-game average.
Nov 2 - 12:06 AM

Deron Williams said the Nets "just looked like crap out there" in their first game of the season.

That should set the tone for the season, D-Will. The Nets had an inability to defend anything, and the Celtics shot an astounding 55.7% from the floor. "It was like [an] open gate, and all the sheep got out of the gate," Lionel Hollins said. Wililams had a solid night, but the collectively, the Nets had one to forget.
Oct 30 - 2:42 PM

Deron Williams had a decent line against the Celtics on Wednesday with 19 points, three rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and four turnovers in 39 minutes.

He looked fine out there and was effective on offense. Of course, the Celtics destroyed BK on defense to put this game out of reach early. If Williams can stay healthy, he'll easily outperform his ADP in fantasy leagues.
Oct 29 - 10:48 PM

Deron Williams was given a rest day at Monday's practice.

Williams is fine and ready to roll for the opener, but the Nets will strategically manage how much stress he puts on his surgically-repaired ankles throughout the season.
Oct 27 - 12:29 PM

Deron Williams will not travel with the Nets for Wednesday's game in Boston.

This is purely a precaution. His ankles have held up well through five preseason games, and he's looked very good in 25.8 minutes per game. Injury concerns have knocked his ADP down to 33.3 in 9-cat Yahoo! leagues, just behind Ty Lawson and ahead of Dwyane Wade.
Oct 21 - 3:25 PM

Deron Williams posted 16 points and added three rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 25 minutes Sunday.

He looked good tonight, apart from the four turnovers, and the Nets are really going to have to rely on him to lead the team this year. Williams is one of the most injury-prone players in the league and has battled ankle injuries for many years now, but if he can stay healthy, he could have a big year. If you are looking for a good risk/reward pick, you will have to gamble on him in the third or fourth round.
