Deron Williams suffers ankle injury during workout


The pursuit of an NBA championship for Deron Williams and the Brooklyn Nets got off to a rocky start on Wednesday when Mike Mazzeo of ESPN reported that the All-Star point guard has suffered a sprained right ankle and a bone bruise while working out in Utah.

Williams is in a walking boot, but is expected to recover by the time the Nets kick off their preseason schedule on October 8th against the Washington Wizards.

While it’s good news for Nets fans that Williams is not expected to miss any significant time, it’s a bit disconcerting after Williams is coming off a season in which he battled through ankle inflammation for the majority of the season.
