Bookie: Deron Williams still needs to recover

Deron WilliamsBookies hope that the Brooklyn Nets stop a five-game losing streak in Toronto without Brook Lopez and Deron Williams on Tuesday night.

Pay per head and UK bookmaker services can see that the Nets’ center and starting point guard are out again injured and won’t play against the Raptors (6-7).

Williams will end up missing his third consecutive game after spraining again his left ankle. He will not play in his fifth contest in six games, which worries bookies and price per head sportsbooks alike, and Lopez’s sprained ankle will put him on the sidelines for a sixth game in a row.

Price per head sportsbooks learned that the Nets (3-10), who lost eight of their last nine contests, may also be without Jason Terry and Andrei Kirilenko. Terry (knee), Kirilenko (back), Shaun Livingston (head contusion), Williams, and Lopez, were all not able to practice on Monday. However, bookies found out that Livingston is thought to be probable against the Raptors.

Bookies know that this season, Williams played in nine games, but price per head sportsbooks saw that in two of the last six games he lasted a total of 18 minutes due to his two left ankle injuries. The player missed most of training camp and started the season on a minutes restriction due to an injury on his right ankle.

“It’s frustrating,” Williams said. “The first couple of days I was down just because it seems like I can’t catch a break. It seems like I start feeling good and I just can’t get into a rhythm because I can’t stay on the floor.

“We’re losing right now, so I really want to be out there, and I just can’t do it.”

The player said that his left ankle is day to day, but it’s even more sore than the previous left ankle injury because the ankle wasn’t fully healed when he used it again last Wednesday.

“The problem is I sprained an ankle that was already sprained,” Williams said. “It wasn’t completely healed when I went back out there.”

Price per head sportsbooks and UK bookmaker services know that the Nets need to get healthy – and desperately. Coach Jason Kidd used five different starting lineups. The only Net to have started in every game is Joe Johnson.

“Obviously we didn’t expect for Brook and Deron to be out together, two of our main pieces,” Johnson said. “Man, it’s definitely hurt us. But we’ve got to try to do something to get some wins before those guys get back. We can’t wait.”
