Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King confirmed Thursday that an MRI revealed point guard Deron Williams has bone spurs in his left ankle and probably will have to undergo offseason surgery to have them "cleaned up."

However, King downplayed the results and expects the injury to be "manageable."

Mannix has the scoop on the Celtics and this brings up an interesting discussion, again, once this Jeremy Lin/Novak stuff is figured out. The Knicks don't have much wiggle room assuming they give Lin the full MLE. It sounds also that Novak will return and J.R. Smith will not opt out, but the Knicks need to improve from a shot making perspective. Word is Lamar Odom is still very interested in playing in New York.
