Welcome Back Deron!
Posted by Erik on November 28, 2008
It has been a long and agonizing wait for a lot of Deron Williams (PG, Utah Jazz) fantasy owners. I’m on that list. I own him in 25% of my fantasy leagues. We had to tighten our belts and grit our teeth as we rode through the difficult period of Deron’s absence as he recovered from a bad ankle sprain early in the season.
Well the wait is finally over and we (his owners) can breathe a sigh of relief as we witnessed his healthy return to action last night against the Memphis Grizzlies. He played a humble yet respectable 29 minutes.
All those people who drafted him in the early second round can finally see their investments come to fruition as Deron Williams gave us a taste of hopefully what’s more to come. He scored 11 points and dished out 15 assists – not a bad appetizer if I should say so myself.
Anyway, I’m just darn glad that he’s back and healthy.
Welcome back, Deron! Bring on the pain! Now that your ankle’s all better, you can break down the opposing defense with either your jumpshot or your killer crossover… woohoo!
