After spraining his ankle in the offseason, Broklyn Nets’ Deron Williams has been forced to sit out practice and preseason games during training camp. While he still hopes to be ready to go for opening night, he has admitted that the injury has been very frustrating.
“It’s frustrating having to sit out, frustrating having to watch them play games in the preseason. Really, practice, practice has been fun to watch; but also frustrating to watch because I can’t be out there,” Williams said.
“They’ve had a lot of battles out there, a lot of great practices and I want to be a part of them. So at times I feel like I’m not part of this team right now because I’m not out there, I want to be a part of this team when I am practicing.”
It really is disappointing for the team as a whole that Williams has not been able to fully participate in practices. He is reading up on the sets and is doing his homework, but with three new veterans on the roster, developing chemistry and common ground is essential.
