Shawne Williams Injury Update: Foot Surgery Costs Williams Rest Of Season

New Jersey Nets forward Shawne Williams underwent successful left foot surgery today to repair an old fracture and remove two small bone fragments, Nets General Manager Billy King announced Wednesday. The surgery, performed at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan by foot specialist Dr. Martin O’Malley and Nets team orthopedist Dr. Riley Williams III, involved the insertion of three small screws to repair the fracture.

Williams will miss the remainder of the season and should make a full recovery in time for the beginning of training camp.

Williams was signed as a free agent prior to the 2011-12 season. He appeared in 25 games, averaging 4.5 points and 2.7 rebounds in 20.6 minutes of action per contest. He last played on Feb. 11.

The Nets just got their best big man, Brook Lopez, back a few days ago. Lopez had missed the entire season after suffering a broken foot during the preseason.
