Rough Start for the J-Will


J-WILL UPDATE: Johnson said Jordan Williams will miss another four to five days of practice as he recovers from dehydration. He received some IV treatments Wednesday, and was at practice on Thursday. The Nets want to continue letting the second-round pick work with the team’s strength and conditioning coach.

“We’ll see, some time around the middle of the week, probably Wednesday, I’ll probably have another update on him,” Johnson said.

Johnson added that it isn’t necessary that the 21-year-old plays in the team’s second and last preseason game next Wednesday in New York.

From Yesterday:

In other news, Johnson said that rookie second-round pick Jordan Williams will miss a a minimum of five days with dehydration. Wiliams is going to get some tests and receive IVs.

“He was really losing weight at a really high level. That concerned us. There were some other issues, medical issues that came up in practice,” Johnson said.

And the Day before:

Here’s Johnson on second-round pick Jordan Williams, five days into training camp:

“He’s making some progress, he’s working really hard -- he’s got a little bit of a ways to go. It’s pretty tough, sometimes, for rookies coming into our league and trying to adjust, and -- but I think the main thing is he’s working awfully hard, he’s spending a lot of time with our strength and conditioning coach before practice and -- but yeah, he’s working hard.”

Johnson did smile somewhere in there, leading one to believe Williams’ conditioning could be better. Granted, he is a rookie, so it’s fair to cut him some slack in that respect.
