Deron Williams Of New Jersey Nets Has Wrist Surgery

Deron Williams underwent surgery on his damaged right wrist Monday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, Nets General Manager Billy King announced today.

Williams, the star point guard acquired in February for Devin Harris, Derrick Favors and draft picks, had bone fragments and scar tissue removed from his right wrist. The surgery was performed by hand specialist Dr. Andrew Weiland and Nets team orthopedic Dr. Riley Williams III.

Williams’ wrist will be encased in a soft splint for two weeks, after which time he will begin rehabilitation. He is expected to fully participate in training camp for the 2011-12 NBA season. Williams played in 12 games for the Nets, averaging 15.0 points and 12.8 assists.

“The bony fragments and scar tissue taken from Deron’s wrist today were interfering with this ability to flex his wrist,” said Dr. Williams. “We expect a full recovery and a return to basketball-related activities in approximately 6-8 weeks.”
