Out Fractured rib Open link
Williams went through most of Thursday's practice, including some contact, but has been ruled out in advance of Friday's game vs. the Raptors. He could potentially return on Monday given his recent progress, though that remains to be seen. Friday will mark the 11th straight game that Williams has missed due to a fractured rib. Jarrett Jack will see heavy run at the point for as long as he remains sidelined, with Darius Morris seeing additional run off the bench.

Injured Fractured rib Open link
Williams took part in the non-contact portions of the Nets' team practice on Tuesday but won't play on Wednesday vs. the Hawks. That he's yet to resume contact work means he's not particularly close to returning to the active roster, and we're considering him out for Friday's game vs. the Raptors, as well. Wednesday will mark the 10th straight game that Williams has missed, and he remains without a specific timetable for a return. Jarrett Jack will see heavy run at the point for as long as he remains sidelined, with Darius Morris seeing additional run off the bench.

Injured Fractured rib Open link
Williams has resumed some on-court non-contact work but is still experiencing some pain and has been ruled out for the Nets' current three-game road trip, which runs through Saturday. He was seen running on an anti-gravity treadmill and did some shooting and dribbling after practice on Tuesday. The Nets said the next update for Williams will be when his status changes, which presumably means when he's able to move to full contact work. Williams will miss his seventh straight game on Wednesday due to a rib fracture and remains without a specific timetable for a return. Jarrett Jack will see heavy run at the point for as long as he remains sidelined, with Darius Morris seeing additional run off the bench.

Injured Fractured rib Open link
Williams will travel with the Nets on their three-game road trip spanning from Jan. 21-24, though it's still highly unlikely that he'll be able to play in any of those three games. He has already been ruled out for Wednesday's contest vs. the Kings. Williams was seen running on an anti-gravity treadmill and did some shooting and dribble after practice on Tuesday. He will be re-evaluated on Wednesday, after which the Nets will provide an update on his status. Williams has missed the past six games due to a rib fracture and remains without a specific timetable for a return. We'll continue to update his status as we hear more. Jarrett Jack will see heavy run at the point for as long as he remains sidelined, with Darius Morris seeing additional run off the bench.

Injured Fractured rib Open link
The Nets announced Thursday that Williams is "progressing" in his recovery from a rib fracture but has yet to return to any physical activity. He's expected to be re-evaluated again next Wednesday. Williams remains without a specific timetable for a return, and at this point it seems possible that his absence will extend into early February, pending on the results of his next evaluation. We'll continue to look for news and post further updates as information allows. Jarrett Jack will continue to see heavy run at point guard for as long as he remains sidelined, with Darius Morris seeing additional run off the bench.

Injured Fractured rib Open link
Williams said Tuesday that he's feeling better but remains without a timetable for a return from his fractured rib. "Still pretty sore," said Williams. "I don’t have a timetable, just take it one day at a time." He was originally scheduled to be re-evaluated sometime over the next few days, with a more specific timeline for his return expected to be announced at that point, although it remains unclear exactly when and if that will still happen. We'll continue to look for news and post further updates as information allows. Jarrett Jack will continue to see heavy run at point guard for as long as Williams remains sidelined, with Darius Morris seeing additional run off the bench.
1/8/2015 1:15 PM
Injured Fractured rib Open link
Williams has been diagnosed with a fracture in the cartilage portion of one of his left ribs and will be re-evaluated in one week. He's been dealing with pain in his left side since he left Sunday's game with what he thought was a muscle cramp, but an MRI on Thursday revealed the fracture. The Nets are calling him out indefinitely, and for now we're declaring him out for the next three weeks, which would mean he'd miss the next 11 games. We'll look for the results of his re-evaluation and update his status as we hear more. Jarrett Jack will continue to see heavy run at point guard for as long as Williams remains sidelined, with Darius Morris seeing additional run off the bench
1/7/2015 7:10 PM
Doubtful Sore left side Open link
Williams is doubtful to return to Wednesday's game after aggravating his sore left side injury early in the second quarter. He tweaked it during a drive to the basket and was in apparent pain afterwards, clutching at the general area on his way to the locker room. Jarrett Jack and Darius Morris will handle the point guard duties for the Nets the rest of the way with Williams unlikely to return.
1/7/2015 4:24 PM
Active Sore left side Open link
Williams has been upgraded to active and will play in Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics. It's an interesting turn of events for Williams, who sat out Monday after being declared probable and will now play on Wednesday after being declared doubtful. He tweaked his oblique towards the end of Sunday's loss, and said afterwards that it felt more like a muscle cramp than an injury. Williams also tweaked his back in the second quarter when he absorbed contact on a play where he was fouled, but was able to continue to play until he suffered the cramping. His return will take some minutes back at the point from Jarrett Jack and Darius Morris.
1/6/2015 3:17 PM
Doubtful Sore left side Open link
Williams is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics due to a sore left side. He sat out Monday after tweaking his oblique towards the end of Sunday's loss, and said afterwards that it felt more like a muscle cramp than an injury. Williams also tweaked his back in the second quarter when he absorbed contact on a play where he was fouled, but was able to continue to play until he suffered the cramping. He had been listed as probable leading up to Monday's game but was eventually scratched, with coach Lionel Hollins saying he was in too much pain to play. Jarrett Jack will see heavy run at the point for as long as Williams remains sidelined, with Darius Morris seeing minutes in reserve.
1/5/2015 4:35 PM
Out Sore left side Open link
Williams has been ruled out of Monday's game vs. the Mavs due to a sore left side. Coach Lionel Hollins said Williams is in too much pain to play. He tweaked his oblique towards the end of Sunday's loss, and said afterwards that it felt more like a muscle cramp than an injury. Williams also tweaked his back in the second quarter when he absorbed contact on a play where he was fouled, but was able to continue to play until he suffered the cramping. Jarrett Jack will see heavy run at the point on Monday in his absence, with Darius Morris stepping into a more expanded reserve role.
1/5/2015 11:30 AM
Probable Sore left side Open link
Williams is considered probable for Monday's game vs. the Mavs due to a sore left side. He tweaked his oblique towards the end of Sunday's loss, and said afterwards that it felt more like a muscle cramp than an injury. Williams also tweaked his back in the second quarter when he absorbed contact on a play where he was fouled, but he was able to continue to play until he suffered the cramping. It doesn't look like he'll have to miss any time, and he'll likely continue to come off the bench in an expanded role behind Jarrett Jack.
1/4/2015 8:19 PM
Questionable Left side/back cramp Open link
Williams said after Sunday's game that his back/side locked up on him towards the end of regulation and forced him to the bench, adding that it felt like a muscle cramp more than an injury, and he's hopeful that he'll be able to play on Monday. Williams did tweak his back in the second quarter when he absorbed contact on a play where he was fouled, but he was able to continue to play until he suffered the cramping. We'll look for further updates on his status on Monday, and it will be Jarrett Jack and Darius Morris to see the run at point guard if he can't go vs. the Mavs.
12/26/2014 11:13 AM
Active Strained right calf Open link
Williams is active for Friday's contest vs. the Celtics after missing the past two games due to a strained right calf. He suffered the injury midway through the second quarter of Friday's loss, and an MRI on Saturday revealed the low-grade strain. Jarrett Jack will draw another start at the point on Friday even with Williams available, as coach Lionel Hollins looks to ease him back in.
12/26/2014 10:40 AM
Questionable Strained right calf Open link
Williams is considered a game-time decision for Friday's contest vs. the Celtics due to a strained right calf. He returned to practice on Wednesday after sitting out the Nets' last two games, which is at least an encouraging sign for his potential availability. Williams suffered the injury midway through the second quarter of Friday's loss, and an MRI on Saturday revealed the low-grade strain. There's a bit of concern here given Williams' history of missing time due to previous ankle and calf issues, although he said "the doctor said it wasn't too bad." Jarrett Jack will draw another start at the point on Friday regardless of Williams' availability, as coach Lionel Hollins looks to ease him back in.
12/24/2014 10:38 AM
Probable Strained right calf Open link
Williams returned to practice on Wednesday after sitting out the Nets' last two games due to a strained right calf. It's an encouraging sign and bodes well for his availability ahead of Friday's contest vs. the Celtics. Williams suffered the injury midway through the second quarter of Friday's loss, and an MRI on Saturday revealed the low-grade strain. There's a bit of concern here given Williams' history of missing time due to previous ankle and calf issues, although he said "the doctor said it wasn't too bad." Coach Lionel Hollins said Williams will probably come off the bench on Friday behind Jarrett Jack as he looks to ease him back in.
12/23/2014 4:00 PM
Out Strained right calf Open link
Williams has been ruled out again for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets, as expected, due to his strained right calf. He did not participate in practice on Monday and sat out Sunday as well with the injury, which he suffered midway through the second quarter of Friday's loss. An MRI on Saturday revealed the low-grade strain. There's a bit of concern here given Williams' history of missing time due to previous ankle and calf issues, although he said "the doctor said it wasn't too bad." Jarrett Jack will see the majority of the run at point guard for as long as Williams remains sidelined, with Darius Morris also seeing extended run off the bench.
12/23/2014 11:04 AM
Doubtful Strained right calf Open link
Coach Lionel Hollins doesn't expect Williams to be available for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets due to his strained right calf. He did not participate in practice on Monday and sat out Sunday as well with the injury, which he suffered midway through the second quarter of Friday's loss. An MRI on Saturday revealed the low-grade strain.

12/22/2014 12:01 PM
Questionable Strained right calf Open link
Williams did not participate in the Nets' team practice on Monday due to his right calf strain, and reports are that he also underwent a dental procedure. His status for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets is unclear, although his not taking part in the practice session doesn't bode well for his availability. Williams sat out Sunday due to the calf injury, which he suffered midway through the second quarter of Friday's loss, and an MRI on Saturday revealed the low-grade strain. Obviously there is a bit of concern here given Williams' history of missing time due to previous ankle and calf issues, although Williams said "the doctor said it wasn't too bad." Jarrett Jack will see the majority of the run at point guard for as long as Williams remains sidelined, with Darius Morris also seeing extended run off the bench.
12/21/2014 3:23 PM
Out Strained right calf Open link
Williams has been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. the Pistons, as expected, due to his right calf strain. He left Friday's loss midway through the second quarter after suffering the injury and did not return, and a Saturday MRI revealed the low-grade strain. Williams said after Friday's game that his calf was tight during the first quarter and he then strained it while attempting to make a pass on a play in the second quarter. Obviously there is a bit of concern here given Williams' history of missing time due to previous ankle and calf issues, although Williams said "the doctor said it wasn't too bad." Jarrett Jack will see the majority of the run at point guard with Williams sidelined, with Darius Morris also seeing extended run off the bench.
12/20/2014 12:40 PM
Doubtful Strained right calf Open link
Williams' MRI revealed a low-grade right calf strain, and he's considered doubtful in advance of Saturday's contest vs. the Pistons. He left Friday's loss midway through the second quarter after suffering the injury and did not return. Williams said afterwards that his calf was tight during the first quarter and he then strained it while attempting to make a pass on a play in the second quarter. Obviously there is a bit of concern here given Williams' history of missing time due to previous ankle and calf issues, although Williams said "the doctor said it wasn't too bad." Jarrett Jack will see the majority of the run at point guard with Williams unlikely to play, with Darius Morris also seeing extended run off the bench.
12/19/2014 11:30 PM
Questionable Strained right calf Open link
Williams left Friday's loss due to a strained right calf and did not return. He said afterwards that his calf was tight during the first quarter and he then strained it while attempting to make a pass on a play in the second quarter. He'll get an MRI on Saturday, after which we'll have more details of the extent of the injury, and we'll consider him questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Pistons in the interim. Obviously there is a bit of concern here given Williams' history of missing time due to previous ankle and calf issues, although Williams said "the doctor said it wasn't too bad." He added, "I’m going to get the MRI [Saturday], see what it says, get a lot of treatment and hopefully be ready to go Sunday." Jarrett Jack will see the majority of the run at point guard if this requires Williams to miss any time, with Darius Morris also available for reserve minutes.
9/26/2014 1:47 PM
Injured Ankle surgeries Open link
Williams said Friday that he doesn't quite feel 100 percent as he works back from his ankle surgeries in late May, but he added that that he does feel "at least 20 percent better" than he did at any point last season. Williams has been participating in five-on-five drills for the past two weeks and will enter Nets camp with no restrictions. Coach Lionel Hollins said he has "high expectations from the start" for Williams, and that he's looked great so far in workouts. Williams obviously carries substantial injury risk in the draft's early rounds, but the hope is that the surgeries will put an end to his nagging ankle issues and allow him to play freely and without pain for the first time in three seasons.
5/22/2014 3:18 PM
Injured Ankle surgeries Open link
The Nets announced on Thursday that Williams will undergo surgery on both of his ankles on May 27. He will have a bone chip removed from his right ankle, and have an arthroscopic cleanout with removal of spurs from both the front and back of his left ankle. The team said Williams is expected to be on crutches for four-to-six weeks and then begin rehabilitation. He is scheduled to begin light court activities in August, which will progress to full basketball activities in September. Williams is expected to make a full recovery and be ready for the beginning of training camp. He missed 18 games during the 2013-14 season due to injury, including 16 games due to a sprained left ankle, and will continue to carry substantial risk given his extensive injury history with both ankles and the possibility of aggravation looming every time he takes the court.
