Brooklyn Nets star Deron Williams said he will return to the court on Monday, after missing almost two weeks with a sparined left ankle, according to Andy Vasquez of New Jersey Record.

Williams has been out since early January after re-injuring his left ankle, which caused him to miss time last season as well. Williams received cortisone and platelet-rich plasma shots in both ankles as treatment for the injury, according to ESPN.

Brooklyn will take on their crosstown rivals the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Monday afternoon.
