Deron Williams Sidelined

by October 17, 2010

SLTrib with the 411: “Jazz guard Deron Williams said he will miss the team’s next two preseason games due to a strained right hamstring. Utah has officially ruled Williams out for a road contest Saturday against the Los Angeles Clippers. Williams suffered the strain during the Jazz’s preseason opener versus Portland on Oct. 7. He played through the injury the past three games. But with Williams not regularly playing during the second quarter of Utah’s exhibition contests, he said the pain consistently began to flare up. ‘It hurts every third quarter ,’ Williams said Friday, prior to a Jazz workout at the team practice facility. ‘And [Thursday] it got pretty bad.'”
