NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams told reporters Friday he will not play in the team's preseason opener Tuesday night at Washington and likely will miss its next preseason game as well as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.

Williams suffered a sprain and a bone bruise in his right ankle during an offseason workout in Utah. He has been limited during training camp.

Reserve shooting guard Jason Terry (left knee) says he's a week away from returning to full contact drills.

"I want to get out there, hit a 3, fly around, talk [smack]," Terry said, according to the team's official Twitter account.

Tornike Shengelia remains out of practice because of a problem with his right knee. Gary Forbes missed practice due to illness.
