Deron Williams Dealing With Bone Spur
Nets general manager Billy King confirmed Thursday that Deron Williams has a painful but “manageable” bone spur in his left ankle that will likely require surgery after the season.
In addition to an MRI to diagnosis the condition last week, Williams was given a cortisone shot last Friday to ease the pain from inflammation that was caused by the bone spur.
“The injection worked, and then after the season he’ll probably get it cleaned up,” said King, who did not rule out more cortisone shots for Williams. “But it’s manageable.”
