Jazz G Deron Williams has strained wrist tendon

Utah Jazz guard Deron Williams has been bothered by a strained wrist, which has kept him out of action since Jan. 26. Williams is set to miss his fourth straight game on Wednesday night, and lingering pain caused the All-Star to undergo an MRI to assess the situation, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. The results: Williams does have a strained tendon, and apparently nothing else.
Hand specialist Dr. Steve Huish's evaluation today of Jazz guard Deron Williams' right wrist and a magnetic imaging exam taken of the wrist confirmed that the All-Star has a strained tendon.
Williams, who is not in uniform for a home game tonight against Houston, remains day-to-day. Treatment of his injury will also remain the same.
The Jazz have been in a freefall since since just after the New Year, as the Jazz are 5-9 in their last fourteen games and 2-7 in their last nine games. 

It's a tough time for Williams to be inactive, as the Jazz play six games in the next 10 days. His next opportunity to take the court will come on Friday, when the Jazz visit their division rival, the Denver Nuggets.  In his absence, Jazz coach Jerry Sloan will turn to reserve guards Earl Watson and Ronnie Price.

Williams is averaging 21.9 points, 3.7 rebounds and 9.4 assists on the season.

Knicks in the market for low-dollar point guard

Posted by Royce Young

The Knicks have had their eyes set on Chris Paul for forever. They even inquired about Steve Nash earlier this season. But at the present, they're just hunting a low-dollar point guard.

The New York Times reports the Knicks are after an inexpensive backup point guard that won't add to next season's payroll. So a cheap, expiring point guard is what the Knicks are interested in. The team is reportedly willing to deal Bill Walker, who is making $854,389 this season and $916,100 next season.

Options for the Knicks? Jason Williams, Earl Watson, Earl Boykins and Ronnie Price are a few of the point guards out there with an expiring deal. Patrick Beverley who was released by the Heat is still searching for a team as well as Acie Law who was just waived by the Grizzlies.

However, by the sound of the report, the Knicks are interested in trading, rather than signing. If they were to sign a player like Law or Beverley, they'd have to waive someone. Most likely Walker again, but New York probably feels like a trade could net a better player than Law or Beverley.

The Knicks point guard situation isn't great with Toney Douglas backing Raymond Felton currently. Douglas is more of a shooting guard and behind him is rookie Andy Rautins who most definitely isn't a point guard.

New York wants a legitimate point guard to have on the roster, especially since the team is looking competitive. If Felton were to go down, man, they'd be in trouble. (Speaking of, Felton is quietly having a really nice season. 18.1 ppg and 8.3 apg isn't too shabby.)
