Deron Williams Frustrated with His Recovery
Deron Williams has received at least eight injections to his ankles in the last four months, hoping the pain from the inflammation would subside enough to get him through a frustrating season.
The point guard revealed Friday that the cortisone shots Thursday were the third of such treatments since training camp started. He also plans to have another round of injections before the playoffs start.
Still, Williams understands that the only real cure is rest – even though his competitive side won’t allow it to last very long. He took off more than a week after getting PRP injections in his ankles before the All-Star break.
“I don’t want to (take a month off),” he said. “I’ve gotten frustrated some nights where I can’t do anything, can’t go anywhere, it’s frustrating and that’s how you want to think, but I can’t do that.”
