Deron Williams (ribs) is out as expected on Saturday against the Jazz.

After getting in some work on the practice floor this week, there is reportedly a chance that D-Will could return for Monday's home game against Portland, but owners shouldn't hold their breath. We should know more about his status by the end of the weekend, so owners should check back for updates. Jarrett Jack will continue to run the show for Brooklyn in Williams' absence.

Deron Williams (ribs) has been ruled out until at least Monday's home game, but he was able to participate in an on-court workout Thursday.

Williams has fractured rib cartilage but he moved with ease on Thursday, "even doing a little bit of quick post-ups with minimal contact." Darius Morris has assumed backup PG duties in D-Will's absence but Jarrett Jack has done the heavy lifting, averaging 34.8 minutes as Brooklyn's starter.

Deron Williams (ribs) will not play on the current road trip.

That means he's out until at least Monday against the Blazers. Williams is still experiencing pain, but he is doing some on-court work. It'll be Jarrett Jack starting for the foreseeable future, so he's worth owning in all leagues right now.

Deron Williams (fractured rib cartilage) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

Updated a previous item, Williams will still travel with the Nets on their three-game road trip despite this news. The Nets visit the Clippers and Jazz on Thursday and Saturday, so it's possible we still see D-Will return during the road trip. For now, Jarrett Jack remains a solid fantasy start for Wednesday's game.

Deron Williams (fractured rib cartilage) will travel with the Nets on their three-game road trip.

The Nets will provide an update on Williams on in advance of their game against the Kings on Wednesday, but it's looking like he's inching closer to a return. Jarrett Jack will likely continue to start for the short-term even when Williams is able to return, but his fantasy value will ultimately take a hit once Williams is back on the court.
Jan 20 - 12:38 PM

Deron Williams (ribs) remained out of practice on Monday, but he was spotted getting some shots up.

There is still no timetable for D-Will's return, so don't get too excited. He's expected to be reevaluated this week, so we should learn more at that point. Jack is averaging 15.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.2 steals on 46.2 percent shooting through 16 games as a starter.

Deron Williams (ribs) has been ruled out for both Friday and Saturday's game against the Wizards.

Williams is making progress, but he is still experiencing pain, and he will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. He has not yet been able to do any physical activity, and he's uncertain when he'll be able to begin working out or playing, so there's a good chance he misses a large portion of the Nets' upcoming three-game road trip. Stay tuned.

Deron Williams (ribs) is progressing, but still has pain and has yet to return to physical activity.

Williams will be evaluated on Wednesday, according to the Nets, so we should know more about his return timetable next week. Fantasy owners should remain patient until we know more, while Jarrett Jack will continue to start in Williams' place and should be owned in all fantasy leagues.
Jan 15 - 1:08 PM

Deron Williams (calf) still has no timetable for a return according to the New York Post.

"I’m still pretty sore. I don’t have a timetable, just taking it one day at a time," Williams said. "There’s nothing you can do, really. They’re doing some laser and heating it up; just rest. Other than that, there’s nothing really you can do." An expert reportedly told the Post that similar injuries normally takes four weeks to heal, so it looks like Williams could be out for a little while. His owners should remain patent for now until we get further updates, but expect Jarrett Jack to fill the void for the Nets for the foreseeable future.
Jan 14 - 10:14 AM

Deron Williams (ribs) said he is feeling better, but is unsure of when he'll return.

Williams said he hasn't worked out or done any physical activity since fracturing cartilage in his 12th rib and is without a timetable to return. Joe Johnson will be asked to handle the ball more and Dariuis Morris will see more playing time with Williams injured, but Jarrett Jack is the biggest beneficiary of Williams' absence and should be owned in all fantasy leagues while Williams remains out.
Jan 13 - 1:48 PM

Deron Williams is out indefinitely due to a cartilage fracture of his 12th rib, the Nets announced on Thursday.

He will be re-evaluated in one week but it's unclear how long the injury may sideline him, leaving Jarrett Jack at the helm of the Nets' offense as the unquestioned starting PG. Darius Morris should see more playing time off the bench, and Joe Johnson will be asked to handle the ball more, but Jack is the obvious winner for however long D-Will is out. We'll pass along updates as the Nets release more information.

Deron Williams (sore left side) went to get medical tests on Thursday and didn't attend the Nets' practice.

Williams was in serious pain when he left the arena after aggravating his injury on Wednesday and he could be looking at an extended absence. We'll know more once the test results are disclosed, but Jarrett Jack is a great speculative pickup given his recent play as the starting PG.
Jan 8 - 12:44 PM

Deron Williams did not return after aggravating his side injury and finished with just one rebound in four minutes on Wednesday.

It didn't look good and based on how he walked to the locker room, we're expecting him to miss time. Tonight was the first time Williams failed to score in a regular season game since back in 2006. He's not a cut candidate, but we've probably see the best out of him so far this season. If he's going to miss more time, Jarrett Jack is going to keep starting and producing for the Nets.
Jan 8 - 12:10 AM

Deron Williams grabbed at his side and asked out of Wednesday's game and was receiving treatment on the bench.

He went to the locker room and it looks like he's going to miss the rest of this one. Williams also has a good chance to sit out in the future. Considering Jarrett Jack was already playing very well, he makes sense as a speculative add for any owner wanting a point guard.
