Deron Williams shot around with the team this morning. Didn’t look to have any hindrances in short time we saw him. Ruled out for tonight.

Tim Bontemps

From @Fred Kerber - Deron Williams finally returned to some contact portions of practice Thursday: nypost.com/2015/01/30/reh…

Tim Bontemps

Here's my Nets Rewind on Joe Johnson, Alan Anderson starting and the need for Deron Williams to return ASAP: nyp.st/1CPlGTF

Tim Bontemps

This only further reinforces the Nets' need to get Deron Williams back as soon as possible. They're much better when he plays/Morris doesn't

Mike Mazzeo

Agree Deron Williams isn't going to single-handedly save the season. But they're better with him on the court than w/o. That's all. #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Next up for BK: Toronto, LAC, Toronto, streaking NYK and eight straight on the road. Deron Williams needed. Desperately. #Nets

Rod Boone

#Nets are out of gas. This is when not having enough talented bodies comes back to haunt them. They need Deron back quickly.

Devin Kharpertian

Darius Morris is 0-6 from the field, 0-4 from 3. The Nets desperately need Deron Williams back.

Mike Mazzeo

Hawks shoot 38.7 percent from 3 as a team. Deron Williams is Brooklyn's best shooter from deep (38.9 percent) #Nets

Lenn Robbins

#Nets face daunting task vs #Hawks, who have won 16 straight. Hawks scoring 103 pts per game. Nets 95. No @Deron Williams & no @Mirza Teletovic

Rod Boone

#Nets held a light practice in Philly today and they say Deron participated in the non-contact portions. Still listed as out for ATL.

Chris Vivlamore

Nets list Deron Williams as OUT for Wednesday's game vs. Hawks. #ATLHawks

Alex Raskin

Deron Williams is out for the #nets game against the #Hawks on Wednesday.

Devin Kharpertian

Update: Deron Williams participated in non-contact portions of Nets practice today. He is still ruled out for tomorrow vs. Hawks

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams practiced non-contact today in Philly. Out tomorrow vs. Hawks #Nets

Devin Kharpertian

Also, Joe Johnson is the ONLY healthy Nets player shooting above league average from 3. & Deron Williams is the only other.

Alan Hahn

Lionel isn't the problem. RT @SinceMay14of93: @Alan Hahn @Marc Stein sounds like Deron Williams is pushing out another coach

Chema de Lucas

Nets have discussed Deron-to-Sacramento (bkga.me/12up9Ik), Joe-to-Hornets (bkga.me/12uiwFT). #TBGRunsThis

Tim Bontemps

As @Andy Vasquez pointed out, these last few weeks have showed one thing loud & clear: the Nets are much better when Deron Williams plays.

Devin Kharpertian

This week, I wrote about the problem with trading the Big 3, which is mostly the problem with trading Deron Williams. thebrooklyngame.com/deron-williams…

Mike Mazzeo

Obviously, the #Nets need Deron Williams. Wonder if he'll do some contact stuff this week and get back into the lineup. Would be nice.

Rod Boone

Deron is making the rounds before the game tonight. Saying hello to a lot of people, catching up with several players and arena personnel.

Just asked Deron Williams for a pre-game interview. His response "You know me better than that" lol

Elfrid Payton says Deron Williams has been the toughest player for him to guard in the NBA so far: reddit.com/r/nba/comments…

Sean Highkin

Nets really need to trade Brook and Deron so there's no chance of them making the playoffs and us having to watch them.

Lenn Robbins

Something not right w @Mirza Teletovic ..headed t the locker room w trainer Tim Walsh..#Nets already without KG and @Deron Williams

Devin Kharpertian

A lot of people calling Deron Williams’s injury a fractured rib. It’s not. It’s fractured rib cartilage.
