Williams, Humphries out Wednesday

Deron Williams and Kris Humphries will miss Wednesday night’s game against the Celtics. They are both day to day. Williams has sore ribs, while Humphries has a sprained left shoulder.

• As you can tell, things aren’t going all that well for the Nets. They’re 1-5. Still, D-Will understands it’s not just going to change overnight ... baring a D-12 trade.

“Very confident in what [GM] Billy [King]’s doing, and that’s why I’m trying to be – I am being patient,” Williams told reporters in Boston. “I understand, like I said, there’s a bigger picture.”

The Nets signed a long-term lease at 15 MetroTech Center in Brooklyn, which will serve as the team’s headquarters.

The staff is expected to begin relocating from its current East Rutherford, N.J. location in February.
