Nets PG Deron Williams plays 52 minutes in triple OT loss vs. Bucks
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/19/14) Nets point guard Deron Williams scored 18 points on 7 of 14 shooting, including 3 of 7 shooting from three-point range, while playing a whopping 52 minutes in his team's 122-118 triple-overtime loss to the Bucks Wednesday.
Williams made a big three-pointer with about a minute left in triple OT to bring the Nets to within two points, but his team was unable to find any more scoring over the final minute to stave off the loss. He also racked up seven assists, five rebounds and two steals in the 52-minute performance. The Nets will look to get back on track Friday against the Thunder.
Should you sell high on Deron Williams?
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(11/12/14) At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, I took a look at some players who have gotten off to hot starts, to see if Fantasy owners should be looking to make a move. One of the key names to come up was Nets guard Deron Williams, who looks spry and healthy following a few years of ankle issues. Here is what I have to say about Williams:
"Williams has looked mighty healthy so far this season, and is putting up the kind of numbers we have come to expect from a guy who was once in the running for the Best Point Guard title. He is back to attacking the basket and drawing fouls, while taking on a less passive role in the offense. Williams is taking just 20.9 percent of his shots on spot-up situations, compared to 28.6 percent last season; that's a good sign."
Ultimately, selling high on Williams might make sense if you are worried about the health of his ankles. However, if offseason surgery was enough to get him through the season, you're going to miss out on a potential top-10 season at his position.

|(11/7/14) Nets guard Deron Williams dominated the Knicks Friday night.
Williams shot 10-15 from the field, including 2-3 from beyond the arc. He also managed to sink 7-10 free throw attempts. Williams was able to do all this despite being guarded by Iman Shumpert, who has taken a step forward as a defender this season. Williams also dished out six assists. He finished with 29 points.
Nets' Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett starting in opener

|(10/29/14) Nets point guard Deron Williams (ankle) and Kevin Garnett (illness) are in the starting lineup for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Celtics.
Williams underwent surgery on both ankles during the offseason. Garnett dealt with a stomach virus late in the preseason. The pair will be joined by Joe Johnson, Bojan Bogdanovic and Mason Plumlee in the starting lineup.
Deron Williams has surgery on both ankles
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/31/14) Nets point guard Deron Williams underwent surgery on both ankles earlier in the week, according to the Record. Williams will be sidelined 4-6 weeks on crutches, and will resume basketball activities in August.|
Williams averaged 14.5 points, 5.8 assists while shooting 39.5 from the floor and 34.0 percent from downtown in 12 postseason games. He averaged 14.3 points and 6.1 assists while shooting 45.0 percent from the floor and 36.6 percent from beyond the arc in 64 regular season games.
|After another year derailed due to lingering ankle issues, Deron Williams finally had surgery on both of his ankles this offseason. Hopefully going the surgical rout will help get Williams healthy, as he was limited to just 64 games during his most frustrating season yet in 2013-14. Williams averaged just 14.3 points and 6.1 assists per game in his 64 appearances a year ago, the lowest averages he has posted since his rookie season. He has tried to manage the pain in his ankles over the last few years with regular rounds of cortisone shots, but has suffered continual setbacks at every step. There are still plenty of questions about whether Williams can stay healthy and find the form that made him one of the top point guards in the league, and hopefully surgery can help answer them. At this point, Fantasy owners have to consider Williams too big a risk to be worth targeting in the first few rounds, so start looking his way in the middle third of the draft.
