He's Back

The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that Deron Williams will play against the 76ers tonight in Philadelphia. Perhaps used sparingly, Deron is said to be ready to go. We could certainly use his leadership and court presence out there for the Jazz. Is this a good decision by the Jazz or a sign of desperation? I hope he doesn't aggravate or reinjure his hobbled ankle. It has been 3 weeks since Deron injured his ankle which may have provided ample time for him to recover. Here's to hoping for a safe, early-season debut!

In other related news, as predicted below, Kosta Koufos will make his 1st start for the Jazz at center. With Memo leaving the country to attend to a sick family member, Collins still nursing an elbow injury, and Fess renewing his visa in Canada, Kosta will get the start. Here's to hoping he plays well!

I don't think it's desperation. We're 5-1 right not. A loss to Philly on the road is a punch to the gut but it certainly doesn't derail our playoff hopes or anything. My guess is that D Will is itching to get out there and the medical staff has finally given him the green light. . .
