King: No limits on D-Will by Sunday
By Mike Mazzeo
Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King said point guard Deron Williams will be off of a minutes limit for Sunday’s game against the Orlando Magic.
“His minutes will increase [Friday night],” King told WFAN on Thursday. “By Sunday, he’ll be back to his normal minutes.”
Williams, who was limited to just 10 minutes in the preseason due to a sprained right ankle injury he suffered during an offseason workout in Utah, played 22 minutes in the team’s 98-94 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. He scored seven points and had nine assists, but did not play in the final 17 minutes because he had already reached his minutes limit.
