VIDEO: Deron Williams leaves game early with ankle injury

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Deron Williams has been battling injury problems early this season, and he picked up another one against Phoenix on Friday.

In the first quarter Williams rolled his ankle and was forced to leave the game. It's another ankle problem for Williams, which has been the main injury he's been dealing with this season.

If the Nets are without Williams for an extended amount of time -- the ankle roll looked pretty tough -- it could put them in an even deeper hole. They're 2-5 so far this season and haven't looked all that good at any point.
