Deron Williams has been shanking frequently. It's been that way for a little while, with Deron going from a .439 field-goal mark in 2010-2011, to a .407 mark in 2011-2012, to where we're currently at with his .382 field-goal percentage in 2012-2013. Howard Beck of the New York Times listed some functional reasons that may account for Deron's shooting woes:
"The source of Williams's struggles is somewhat elusive, but injuries — including a banged-up right (shooting) wrist and sore right elbow — have surely played a role. He also has a left-ankle injury that will probably require surgery next summer. Williams said it is not the bumps and bruises, but his general comfort level, that is to blame."
Are Deron Williams' Shooting Woes a Temporary Slump or Permanent Pattern?
