View Full Version : The Return Of Deron Williams

Just letting y'all know Deron will be returning tonight for the Jazz against the Grizzlies.

"For about a week now, he's been targeting tonight's game for attempted return No. 2 from the sprained left ankle he sustained during an Oct. 18 preseason game at Chicago.The first time he came back - for back-to-back games in Philadelphia and Washington, on Nov. 11 and 12, respectively - it was simply too soon.He was prompted nonetheless by the now 9-6 Jazz's first loss of the season, a 22-turnover debacle two days earlier in New York, and the absence at the time of yet another starter, center Mehmet Okur.This time, however, point guard Deron Williams wants to be sure he's ready.Jazz coach Jerry Sloan instructed him to wait until he's 100 percent - not 80 or less, like last time - and Williams very much wants to be as close to completely recovered as he can before trying yet again.That is why Williams wasn't prepared to commit for certain on Tuesday, instead hedging his remarks with qualifiers and possible outs when asked if he still felt he'd be good enough to go when Utah plays host tonight to the Memphis Grizzlies."We'll see," Williams said."I think so," he added. "I think (the ankle) is pretty strong. It's just more 'playing through pain.' ... I'll wait and see how it feels (later Tuesday) and (today), and go from there."
