Deron Williams won't play in Monday's game against the Atlanta Hawks due to a troublesome ankle injury that has resurfaced.

Per reports, Williams underwent an MRI on Monday but the results of that test aren't yet known. Shaun Livingston will slide over to the point guard position while Alan Anderson moves into the starting lineup.

The Nets assigned Tyshawn Taylor to the NBA D-League this morning only to recall him this afternoon. No word on whether or not he will be available for tonight's game.
