USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo says Deron Williams, out the past two games for the Brooklyn Nets with ankle injuries, was overweight last summer before the point guard hurt his ankle in London.

"Deron Williams, for the Olympics, was not in the best shape," Colangelo told the New York Daily News. "He was a little overweight, and I told him that at the time."

Williams said previously his ankle swelled in London, and he never allowed his body to rest -- a decision he said he would have changed in hindsight. The Nets have attributed Williams' nagging injuries to their star playing nonstop the past two offseasons.

Williams has missed the last two games with inflammation in both ankles, and this week he received platelet-rich plasma injections in both of them. He's expected to return to practice on Monday.
