The Brooklyn Nets will be without point guard Deron Williams as they travel to London to take on the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday, reports ESPN.
The Nets will be desperate to get back to winning ways against the Hawks at the O2 after suffering a 96-80 defeat against the Toronto Raptors yesterday.
However as they go in search of victory in London, they will be without Williams who has been ruled out with a sprained left ankle.
This will be the 16th game of the season that Williams has missed through injury and he could be out of action for an extended period of time.
Alan Anderson now looks set to keep his place in the team and should partner Shaun Livingston in the backcourt.
Before yesterday's defeat, the Nets had won their previous five and they will come up against a Hawks side who have been inconsistent of late.
