8:15 am on 9 April 2011

The New Jersey Nets All Star basketballer Deron Williams will miss the remainder of the season following wrist surgery.

Injury has restricted Williams to just 12 games after he was traded to the Nets from the Utah Jazz in February.

The Nets said an MRI scan had shown bone fragments and a buildup of scar tissue in his right wrist.

New Jersey, who will not feature in this year's playoffs, have a 24-54 record in the Eastern Conference.
