Deron Williams’ ankle isn’t much better, so he’ll be out for at least the Nets’ next two games

Deron doesn't look too happy in this picture and probably isn't happy right now, because he's set to miss at least four games in a row

The Brooklyn Nets may have won their last four games, but not everything is all good and dandy with Jason Kidd's team right now.

First off, they take on the Miami Heat tomorrow night at Barclays to end their four-game homestand. As you probably know, the Nets beat Miami in Brooklyn earlier this year but they had Brook Lopez and Deron Williams (I'll explain soon) for that game. Now, Brook Lopez (foot) is out for the rest of the season and Deron Williams, whose ankle problems have resurfaced, is expected to miss two more games after already being out for the last two, Nets' win over the Hawks and Warriors.

This news means that D-Will will miss both the Heat game on Friday and the game in Toronto against the Raptors on Saturday. After Saturday's contest north of the border, Brooklyn doesn't play until next Thursday, when they take on the Hawks in London. A week ago, it was assumed Deron–who has been playing great basketball as of late–would be traveling to England with his team. Now, that's in jeopardy.\

Brooklyn, admittedly, has been fine without its star point guard the last two games, as Shaun Livingston has assumed the point while Alan Anderson has been starting at the two. That lineup; rounded out by Joe, Paul, and KG; has beaten two above-.500 teams in Atlanta and Golden State, and hopes to do the same against the mighty Heat, who are playing the Knicks at MSG as I write this post.
