D-Will, Terry, Kirilenko to sit vs. Sixers
By Mike Mazzeo
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Brooklyn Nets will be without Deron Williams , Jason Terry, Andrei Kirilenko and Tyshawn Taylor when they take on the Philadelphia Sixers in Monday night's preseason game, according to the team's official media game notes.
Williams (sprained right ankle) said Sunday that he does not have a definitive timetable and when he'll be able to play. He is still just doing light shooting and being listed as limited in practice.
Nets coach Jason Kidd raised the possibility Saturday that Williams may miss the start of the regular season, but Williams did not want to respond to that because he felt it was overblown by the media.
Williams has yet to play in the preseason. He had told ESPNNewYork.com that he'd be out at least through Tuesday.
Shaun Livingston has been starting and playing well in D-Will's place. Livingston had seven assists and no turnovers in 21 minutes on Saturday night.
Terry (left knee rehab), who also has not played yet in the preseason, participated in most of Sunday's practice.
Kirilenko (back spasms) is a new addition to the injury report. He did not practice Sunday.
Taylor (sprained right ankle) suffered his injury late in the second quarter of Saturday night's game.
Tornike Shengelia (right knee rehab) and Jorge Gutierrez (sprained left ankle) are also out.
