Williams has needed constant treatment on the ankle over the past two years, including plasma therapy and cortisone injections. For a complete history of Williams' issues with the ankle, read this from In Street Clothes.
Williams had an up-and-down series vs. Toronto. He was largely absent until Game 6, but finished the series strong on both ends. The Nets need him healthy and ready to go against a Heat team that struggles with dynamic point guards.
