Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams says he will play Tuesday against the Milwaukee Bucks. Williams missed the past two games with inflammation in both ankles. The three-time All-Star received platelet-rich plasma injections in both of his ankles last week. Williams spent this past weekend's All-Star break at a Miami resort with his family and Chicago Bulls power forward Carlos Boozer and his family. "It definitely feels better than it did before I did it," said Williams, who returned to practice Monday. "[The doctors] said a week [of rest] was sufficient, so I trust the doctors. I definitely need more rest than a week for it to get back to normal, but I don't have time right now." Williams said his injured ankles have definitely affected him a lot, and left him without any explosiveness. "I can't jump -- I don't know if you've noticed -- I haven't dunked. I can't dunk," Williams said. "Even if I tried, off one leg I can't dunk. I can dunk off two, but if I tried to jump off my left leg, I can't dunk, so it's definitely affected me.
