Nets Guard Deron Williams to Undergo Surgery on Both Ankles

Nets Guard Deron Williams to Undergo Surgery on Both Ankles

NBA via Brooklyn Nets(NEW YORK) — Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams will undergo surgery on both ankles next week, the team announced Thursday.
“He will have a bone chip removed from his right ankle, and the left ankle will have an arthroscopic cleanout with removal of spurs from both the front and back of the ankle,” team foot and ankle specialist Dr. Martin O’Malley, who will perform the surgery, said in a statement issued by the team.
For the past two seasons, Williams has been plagued by persistent injuries in both of his ankles. He has received multiple cortisone shots and platelet-rich-plasma injections to help ease the pain, but the problem has not gone away.
Williams averaged just 14.3 points and 6.1 assists in 64 games during the regular season for the Nets, the lowest totals since his rookie year. In 12 playoff games, he averaged 14.5 points and 5.8 assists.  The Nets were eliminated by the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The procedures are scheduled for next Tuesday. The 29-year-old Williams still has three years and $63.1 million remaining on his deal with the Nets.
