Deron Williams made 1-of-8 from the field for three points against the Hawks on Saturday with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and three turnovers in 26 minutes.
It was a really bad game from Deron. He didn't play in the final 16 minutes. Williams did suffer a minor lower back injury and there was something wrong with his right leg, but there's been no indication of those injuries being the reason he sat the entire fourth quarter. Apr 25 - 6:11 PM

Deron Williams suffered a hand injury in the first half of Wednesday's game against the Hawks, finishing with two points, 10 boards, eight assists, two steals and three turnovers on 1-of-7 from the field.

The Nets said he was fine at halftime and he did start the second half. Coach Lionel Hollins said after the game that he's not worried about Deron heading into Game 3. As horrible as his shooting line was, Williams was solid in the other areas tonight.
Apr 22 - 10:04 PM

Deron Williams scored 13 points with two 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists in a losing effort vs. the Hawks on Sunday.

The Nets committed 17 turnovers vs. 18 assists and their offense struggled when it wasn't flowing through Brook Lopez, who only attempted seven field goals. Backup PG Jarrett Jack chipped in 13 points in 16 minutes off the bench, but he had only two assists with five turnovers. They'll look to regroup in a must-win road game on Wednesday.
Apr 19 - 8:23 PM

Deron Williams said he wasn't "bothered at all" by Paul Pierce's recent comments that the pressure from the New York media "really affected" Williams' game.

"Being here, I got pretty thick skin," Williams said. "He has his opinions, and that's fine. It's what it is. I can't change his opinions. So just leave it at that." Williams’ numbers are down significantly from his days in Utah when people would debate who was better, Williams or Chris Paul, but that could also be attributed to the fact that Williams has dealt with some pretty serious ankle issues over the years. Until Williams can carry his team on a deep playoff run, criticism will continue to find the point guard and his massive contract.

Deron Williams was awful again on Monday with nine points, seven boards, five assists, two blocks and no turnovers on 3-of-13 from the field against the Bulls.

The Nets offense was a disaster tonight in a game they really needed. Williams is really struggling over his last three, averaging 7.3 points, 7.0 boards, 7.0 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.7 treys on 20.0 percent from the field. Those are not very lucky sevens. The Nets need to win on Wednesday against the Magic.
Apr 14 - 12:55 AM

Deron Williams couldn't get any shots to fall Sunday, making 1-of-11 from the field to finish with four points in a costly loss to the Bucks.

D-Will did chip in seven rebounds, seven assists and one steal to salvage some value for fantasy owners, but this dud drops him to 32.8 percent shooting over his past five games. The Nets are currently 0.5 games ahead of the Pacers for a playoff spot with two home games remaining -- Monday vs. the Bulls and Wednesday vs. the Magic.
Apr 12 - 5:54 PM

Deron Williams had 10 points, 13 assists and five turnovers on 4-of-10 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.

The shooting and TOs were a buzzkill, but He had 24 points and 10 dimes in his previous game, and it's an all-hands-on-deck situation for the Nets, who are trying to hang on for a playoff berth at the bottom of the East.
Apr 8 - 11:13 PM

Deron Williams was in complete control on Monday night against the Blazers, scoring 24 points with six rebounds, 10 assists and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He's playing like a max player right now. In his three previous April games, Williams averaged 22.3 points, 4.0 boards, 7.7 assists, 0.3 steals and 3.7 treys on 53.2 percent from the field. He also only has just 1.5 turnovers per game this month. Williams should be a top-10 point guard the rest of the way with the Nets vying for playoff positioning.
Apr 6 - 9:46 PM

Deron Williams scored just 10 points against the Hawks during a 131-99 loss on Saturday, adding four rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers.

The Nets were down 18 points at half because they left their defense in Brooklyn. Williams and the Nets should have a better offensive showing against the Blazers. Specifically, Damian Lillard has been prone to giving up big lines. Brook Lopez had just 11 points with six boards and Thaddeus Young had just 14 points with eight boards.
Apr 4 - 10:41 PM

Deron Williams made 11-of-18 from the field for 31 points in 38 minutes during a 114-109 win over the Raptors on Friday, adding one rebound, 11 assists and five 3-pointers.

Thadderon Lopez went for 90 points tonight (Thaddeus Young, Deron Williams and Brook Lopez). They're the first Nets trio to score 90 points or more since Devin Harris, Vince Carter and Yi Jianlian in 2008. Williams is finally starting to get big minutes and needs to be starting in all formats. It's worth mentioning the Nets are hosting the only game on Monday against the Blazers to start their four-game week, so owners in daily season-long leagues might want to take advantage of that now before an opponent notices. Yi Jianlian has been playing well in China this season, by the way.

Deron Williams hit 11-of-21 shots and four 3-pointers for 26 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 34 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Knicks.

Williams is rolling lately and looks healthy for the first time in a few seasons. Williams had 18 points in the first half, which was his best scoring half of the season. It must be fun to play the Knicks.
Apr 1 - 11:18 PM

Deron Williams (illness) logged 30 minutes on Tuesday and had 11 points, one 3-pointer six rebounds, eight assists and two steals in a home win vs. Indiana.

Williams missed Monday's practice but he recovered quickly enough to help Brooklyn earn their fourth straight victory, boosting them back into the No. 8 seed with a half-game lead over the Celtics. He got off to a torrid start and could have had an even bigger game if it weren't for persistent foul trouble. It's safe to keep D-Will locked into your active lineups.
Mar 31 - 10:45 PM

Deron Williams (illness) will play against the Pacers on Tuesday.

This is good news for fantasy owners after Williams missed practice on Monday and he can now be slotted into lineups for Tuesday. Jarrett Jack will continue to serve as Williams' backup and is no longer a potential spot-start option on Tuesday.
Mar 31 - 1:13 PM

Deron Williams (illness) was present at shootaround on Tuesday.

Williams missed practice on Monday, so it's good news to see him able to go through shootaround before Tuesday's game against the Pacers. We'll update this status closer to game-time, but Jarrett Jack would be in line for a spot-start and would make for a solid fantasy play if Williams is unable to go.
Mar 31 - 11:14 AM

Deron Williams (illness) did not practice on Monday.

Williams was sick before Sunday's game against the Lakers, but he still managed to play and score 13 points, hand out nine dimes and rip three steals in 34 minutes, so we're not concerned with him missing practice. However, the Nets have a back-to-back against the Pacers and Knicks on Tuesday and Wednesday, so D-Will's owners have to hope he doesn't get any worse.
