Jason Kidd Says Deron Williams Could Miss Start of Season

Deron Williams’ right ankle has been keeping him off the floor as of late, and according to Nets coach Jason Kidd, D-Will may not be ready for the start of the regular season. Per ESPNNewYork: “Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd left open the possibility that point guard Deron Williams could miss the start of the regular season due to an ailing right ankle. ‘This is going to be a question that we’re probably going to have to deal with every day until he does get the green light to go,’ Kidd said Saturday. ‘But we’re not rushing him. So if we have to start the season with him still trying to get better, I think we all feel comfortable, but we would feel a little bit more comfortable if he was starting.’ Asked after Saturday night’s 99-88 preseason loss to the Pistons about Williams possibly being out the first regular-season game and how it would change the mindset of the team in its next five preseason games, Kidd said, ‘I didn’t know he was out so …’ Kidd later added: ‘I don’t go on ifs … right now we are playing with the guys that are dressed, and he is a day by day situation. If he is ready to go, he will play. We will just take it one day at a time. We got to focus on Sunday.’”

    If they were smart they would run PP as a point forward let him do a majority of the ball handling like he did when he was posting great numbers after rondo went down. Of course minute restrictions are needed but I would do that.
