At this point, it feels like the Brooklyn Nets just can’t catch a break.
On Wednesday night, the Nets welcomed back Deron Williams into their lineup after missing their last two contests. However, he was lost in the second quarter after re-injurying his left ankle while falling awkwardly on Kemba Walker’s foot. Brooklyn’s catalyst didn’t return.
Williams finished with four points and two assists in 14 minutes.

Even Jason Kidd has lost track of which ankle Deron Williams' injured: "He sprained one of the ankles so we see how he feels tomorrow."

The game didn’t go much better for them either. Walker scored a season-high 31 points as the Charlotte Bobcats handed the Brooklyn Nets their sixth loss in their past seven games 95-91.
Andray Blatche led the Nets with a season-high 25 points, Joe Johnson (the team’s most consistent player) added 19 points.
The Bobcats led 53-50 at halftime behind 58 percent shooting from the floor. Walker led the way with 14 points on 6 of 9 shooting.
It’s back to the drawing board for the Nets.
