Deron Williams (calf, dental procedure) did not practice on Monday.
Williams didn't play on Sunday due to the calf injury, so that's the reason for owners to be concerned. It doesn't appear D-Will's calf injury is serious, but given the issues with his ankles, we'd like to see Williams avoid any issues with the lower half. Jarrett Jack will start and be a solid plug-and-play option for however long Williams sits, and it's not a lock Williams returns on Tuesday against Denver. Dec 22 - 1:00 PM

Deron Williams (calf) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Pistons, and Jarret Jack will draw the start.

Deron's calf injury isn't expected to be serious, but he does usually take a bit longer to recover from injuries than your average player. Jack looks like a solid add in most leagues, and he'll serve as a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues as long as he's starting.

The Nets are in trade talks with the Kings over former All-Star point guard Deron Williams.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting it, so we know that there is some traction here. Talks are reportedly ongoing, but it is still unclear what other players are involved. Darren Collison would likely have to be included in any deal, but one obstacle to the talks is Sacramento's desire to obtain Mason Plumlee, who the Nets are enamored with. We will let you know if any further developments occur. Stay tuned.
Dec 20 - 6:51 PM

Deron Williams was diagnosed with a low-grade calf strain after an MRI on Saturday, and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game.

This is good news, and the Nets are optimistic that he won't miss too much time. Williams obviously didn't practice on Saturday, but he is expected to be evaluated daily. Check back before tip-off on Sunday, but don't count on him playing in this one. Jarrett Jack would be the main beneficiary if Williams sits, and is worth a look in most leagues.

Deron Williams (calf) is not practicing on Saturday, and we still waiting on the results of his MRI.

He strained his calf on Friday, and there is no word on how severe it is. If he misses any time, Jarrett Jack will become a must-own player. Stay tuned.
Dec 20 - 1:21 PM

Deron Williams said doctors told him that his calf injury wasn't "too bad," and he'll get an MRI on Saturday for further evaluation.

"It was already hurting in the first quarter," Williams said. "It just felt like my calf was tight. I went out and stretched it a little bit, went back in and … I can’t remember who I passed the ball to, but I jumped up and passed in the air and when I landed, I kind of landed on my toe and there was a sharp pain right to the spot that was tight before." Williams added that he did not know the severity of the injury, and anybody considering Jarrett Jack as an add might want to look at this injury more as day-to-day than week-to-week.

Deron Williams suffered a strained right calf on Friday and will not return.

Williams has a litany of leg injuries and he might be getting an MRI to check on the severity of the strain. He also has history of calf strains, so he's a good bet to miss at least a couple games. Jarrett Jack is worth a look for short-term value.
Dec 19 - 8:30 PM

Deron Williams double-doubled in Tuesday's loss to the Heat, finishing with 15 points, 11 assists, one board, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

The trade rumors aren't going anywhere, but Williams doesn't seem too distracted on the court and has been playing really well lately. There is always going to be some risk involved with his shaky ankles, but as long as he stays healthy he will remain a must-start option in all leagues. If you were ever thinking about trading D-Will, his value likely won't be any higher than it is right now.
Dec 17 - 12:18 AM

While reports have surfaced that the Nets want to blow up their team and trade Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez, it sounds like they're more interested in making one big deal and staying competitive as they rebuild.

A more logical theory is that they would trade one of their so-called Big 3, and maybe two of them, but not all three. This can be viewed as good or bad news for Nets fans, as it sounds like the team will attempt to move a big contract or two but not tank to improve their draft position.
Dec 16 - 4:42 PM

Deron Williams played well in Saturday's easy win over the Hornets, finishing with 18 points on 4-of-11 shooting to go with 10 assists, two boards and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

This line would have been even more impressive if this game wasn't such a blowout, but owners can't really complain. Williams has been playing pretty well this season despite slumping last week, but as long as he is healthy he will be a must-start option in all leagues.
Dec 13 - 10:37 PM

Deron Williams missed all eight shots from the field during an 88-70 win over the 76ers on Friday, making three shots from the line with four rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and two turnovers.

He's in a bad slump over his last three, making just 8-of-37 (21.6 percent) from the field. Williams was having a successful offensive season before this dud and he should be better his next time out. There will be some trade rumors surrounding him until the deadline, but he should have decent value as long as he's healthy.
Dec 13 - 12:56 AM

The Nets have made Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, and Brook Lopez available via trade, according to sources of ESPN.

The Nets currently roster the most expensive team in the league, but also boast a losing record of 8-11, so it's not exactly shocking that Brooklyn management is looking to unload some of their less than desirable contracts. However, with all these guys under performing relative to their contract, there probably aren’t many teams eager to add one of these names to their roster. Without knowing what pieces would be coming in, it's too difficult to do any analysis on potential outcomes, so this is just something worth noting for now. Stay tuned.
Dec 9 - 2:30 PM

Deron Williams didn't do much in a 98-75 loss to the Hawks on Friday, scoring eight points with one rebound, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

The Nets were thumped 36-13 in the second quarter and this game was basically over at half. Williams did have some momentum before this stinker with 17.3 points, 6.3 assist and 1.4 steals over his previous 10, so there's no need to worry. He'll look to bounce back on Monday against Kyrie Irving and the Cavs.
Dec 6 - 12:06 AM

Deron Williams struggled mightily on Sunday, shooting 3-of-12 from the field to go with 10 points, three assists, two turnovers, one steal, and one rebound over 34 minutes of action.

Williams had been rolling up to this point, and he'll look to bounce-back in a favorable matchup vs. the Knicks on Tuesday. He's currently averaging 18.4 points, 6.6 assists, 1.6 three-pointers, 1.4 steals, and 3.1 turnovers per game this season, and he'll be a top-20 guard as long as he can stay healthy. However, given Williams troublesome ankles, owners may want to float out some sell-high offers after his next big game.
Nov 30 - 7:28 PM

Deron Williams flirted with a triple-double against the 76ers on Wednesday with 17 points, eight rebounds, 10 assists, one block, two steals and two 3-pointers.

The Sixers couldn't cover him and he picked them apart despite missing a lot of open shots. Williams' assists are on the rise and he's averaged 18.0 points, 5.6 boards, 7.0 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.2 triples over his last five. He should have nice value as long as he's healthy.
