Deron Williams (knee) will play vs. the Knicks on Tuesday.

D-Will has been dealing with tendinitis in his right knee and it wouldn't be surprising to see him rest during Wednesday's game, as the Nets aren't likely to take risks with their oft-injured PG.
Apr 15 - 6:29 PM

Deron Williams (right knee) is listed as a game-time decision on Tuesday.

If he's out due to playoff-prep rest, Marquis Teague would get the start at point guard.
Apr 15 - 10:56 AM

Deron Williams (knee) returned on Sunday, as expected, and scored 16 points with four 3-pointers, five assists and four steals in a nine-point win vs. Orlando.

D-Will played a game-high 35 minutes and his knee didn't seem to bother him, but we'll monitor his status as a precaution for Tuesday's home game vs. the Knicks. Joe Johnson added 17 points with three 3-pointers of his own in the victory.
Apr 13 - 8:40 PM

Deron Williams (knee) is expected to return vs. the Magic on Sunday.

Jason Kidd said that Shaun Livingston (toe) and Alan Anderson (abdomen) are the only unavailable players, so presumably D-Will practiced on Saturday without any problems. Cautious owners should confirm his status after Sunday's shootaround.
Apr 12 - 1:01 PM

Deron Williams (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Hawks due to right patella tendinitis.

Coach Jason Kidd said this is just about rest for Deron and his knee injury doesn't appear serious. Kidd said he's going to rest his players down the stretch and this will be Williams' first DNP since Jan. 16. He should be considered questionable on Sunday. Jorge Gutierrez starts tonight and may get some serious run with Shaun Livingston (foot) also out.
Apr 11 - 5:55 PM

Deron Williams has hit just 6-of-23 shots with six turnovers over his last two games, and could be wearing down.

ESPN's Mike Mazzeo suggests that Williams could use a rest down the stretch in preparation for the playoffs and it's not out of the question, as the Nets appear to be locked into the No. 5 seed. If you own Williams, watch for news prior to each remaining game to make sure he's going to play. If he sits, Marquis Teague and Shaun Livingston (if healthy) would see a boost.
Apr 10 - 11:21 AM

Deron Williams hit just 3-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for eight points, but also had six rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

Williams wasn't great tonight, but was effective and set a team record by recording a steal in 27 straight games.
Apr 8 - 11:07 PM

Deron Williams turned in a nice line during a close 105-101 win over the Sixers with 19 points, four boards, nine assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He looked to have a minor issue with his leg, but he played through it without incident. The Nets almost blew this game and lost the fourth quarter by the score of 32-24. Williams has his Nets sitting in the five seed for the Eastern Conference and he could get some rest down the stretch.
Apr 5 - 10:50 PM

Deron Williams scored eight points with 10 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes vs. the Pistons on Friday.

He didn't have any assists on Wednesday and was able to turn it around in that department. Williams is likely going to get some rest down the stretch and that could happen as soon Saturday. He's been healthy, but his fantasy owners now have to check to make sure he's in the lineup the rest of the way.
Apr 5 - 12:16 AM

Deron Williams failed to hand out an assist on Wednesday against the Knicks with 12 points, one board, one steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

It was his third game of the season without a dime and the sixth of his career. Williams has played very well lately and hasn't suffered an injury in quite some time, so hopefully he can stay healthy for the Nets in the playoffs.
Apr 2 - 10:50 PM

The Nets beat the Wolves on Sunday despite getting just six points and five assists from Deron Williams, who missed eight of his nine shot attempts.

His lone make came from downtown and he did steal the ball twice, but this poor game isn't what owners expected against the up-tempo Wolves. Williams is healthy and he's bounced back quickly after his few duds since the All-Star break, so he should be fine for Tuesday's matchup with the Rockets (minus Patrick Beverley).
Mar 30 - 8:26 PM

Deron Williams hit 11-of-21 shots and five 3-pointers for 29 points, four rebounds, seven assists, a steal and just two turnovers in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Bobcats.

Williams is on fire right now and finally playing with confidence now that he's healthy. He hit a long two-pointer to send the game to overtime, but the Bobcats held on for the win. Williams should be in all lineups until further notice, as he's scored 23 or more in four of his last six games.
Mar 26 - 9:41 PM

Deron Williams (illness) will play against the Bobcats on Wednesday night.

He did not show up to shootaround this morning and it's good news to hear he's going to give it a go. Of course, there is always the risk of a player tapping out during the game, but Williams seems safe to deploy in fantasy leagues because he's played great lately.
Mar 26 - 5:34 PM

Deron Williams (illness) is a game-time decision to face the Bobcats on Wednesday.

He was not at shootaround and there is a legitimate chance he sits out in a big road game. Williams has stayed remarkably healthy considering his track record, playing in every game since Jan. 16. If he can't go Shaun Livingston will handle the ball more while Paul Pierce should have more on his plate.
