Nets' Williams out with wrist injury


Posted Dec 26, 2012 7:41 PM

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams will not play against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night after aggravating his sore right wrist the day before.

Williams used his wrist to brace himself as he fell to the court in Tuesday's 93-76 loss to the Boston Celtics.

Nets trainer Tim Walsh advised Williams, who has been fighting the injury all season, that this might be a good game to miss. Coach Avery Johnson agreed with that decision.

"Seems like every time he falls, he falls directly on it," Johnson said before the game. "We'll continue to evaluate him on a day-in and day-out basis."

Williams, who averages 16.6 points a game, will be replaced in the starting lineup by C.J. Watson.
