FanIQ | Sports Rumors, Gossip, Blogs, News & Discussion ForumsBrooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams is the type of player who will come back strong after injury if given the time to recover. This weekend, he will not be in New Orleans for the All-Star Game, in the same way he wasn’t in Houston a year ago. And the reason for that is he needs to get back to full health again to continue giving his game. And he is taking time off so he can recuperate from a number of small injuries. 
On Tuesday he said he would definitely need some time off to get into shape and full health and will take his time until summer until he makes decisions. 
Williams said his top concern for now was to get back to full form and recover from the many minor injuries plaguing him. He said injuries had been a major problem for the last two years and those circumstances were out of his hands. He said he had plans that by summer he would have made a few decisions regarding his career.
"I just want to get healthy again, man. If I get healthy, I know what can happen,” said Williams when inquired about his how he was holding.  “It’s been a frustrating two years for me injury-wise. It’s something I can’t really control. Hopefully I can figure it out this summer and then go from there."
Nets head coach Jason Kidd said Williams now felt a bit shaky after getting injured so much but added he had all his hopes he would rebound with the time to recover from injuries.
"With some of the injuries that he's had early on, for us it's a matter of him playing well going on from here and into the playoffs and next season," Jason Kidd said. "Right now it's just a matter of him getting better each time he's taking the floor and he's done that."
