Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams, who had an MRI on Monday, was diagnosed with a sprained left ankle, the team announced Tuesday.
Williams was treated with a cortisone shot in the ankle joint, as well as platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections into the lateral ligaments of the ankle. In addition, Williams received a PRP injection into his right ankle and a cortisone injection into his right ankle joint to relieve inflammation.
Williams, who will miss Wednesday's game against Golden State, is currently in a walking boot and will be re-evaluated at the end of the week.
It is the third time Williams, who is averaging 13.6 points and 6.9 assists per game, has been sidelined with an ankle injury.
