Williams to play against C’s

Utah’s starting point guard Deron Williams [right calf] will play tonight against the Celtics [1].

Jazz [2] head coach Jerry Sloan [3] made the announcement 90 minutes before tip-off.

“I’ll let out trainer let me know where he is in the game. That’s what we usually do when a player’s been out, make sure we don’t cause any problems and screw him up in any way,” Sloan explained.

Williams has played in all seven games for the Jazz this season, averaging 21.4 points and 10.7 assists. He suffered the calf strain in Utah’s win on Monday night in New York against the Knicks.
