CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams will not return to Wednesday night's game against the Charlotte Bobcats after re-injuring his left ankle.
The Nets announced Williams has a sprained ankle.
Williams was taken to the locker room in the second quarter after he twisted the ankle when he landed on Kemba Walker's foot after a jump shot.
Williams' ankle turned awkwardly inward and he immediately grabbed at it after hitting the floor.
Williams later limped off the court under his own power.
It was the same ankle that forced Williams to sit out the previous two games.
Williams finished with four points and two assists in 14 minutes.
Thaddeus Young steals the ball and in transition Michael Carter-Williams feeds Young who shovels it to James Anderson for the big finish.
|Gibson Follow Flush|
Mike Dunleavy misses on the triple and Taj Gibson flushes the putback dunk in traffic.
|Pierce Passes Ewing|
Paul Pierce passes Patrick Ewing for 18th on the All-Time Scoring list with his second free-throw.
Rodney Stuckey drives and misses the layup and Jonas Jerebko rises up and flushes the putback follow over Paul George.
|Nuggets vs. Hawks|
DeMarre Carroll has 11 points, Paul Millsap and Pero Antic are each adding 10 points as the Hawks lead the Nuggets 53-37 at the half.
