Nets’ Williams Is Out Until After All-Star Break With Ankle Pain

Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams will miss the team’s next two games due to ankle soreness, keeping him out until after the National Basketball Association’s All-Star break.

Williams, 28, will miss tonight’s game against the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis and another road game in two nights against the Denver Nuggets, the Nets said in a statement.

In 50 games this season, Williams ranks third on the Nets with an average of 16.7 points per game along with a team-high 7.6 assists. The Nets are 29-22 this season second to the New York Knicks in the Atlantic Division.

The NBA All-Star Game is scheduled for Feb. 17 in Houston. Williams is a three-time All-Star selection who wasn’t picked this season.
