Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams is out indefinitely after an MRI on Thursday revealed a fracture to cartilage in his ribs.

“Deron reported some soreness above this area over the weekend and as a result underwent imaging studies on Monday, which were negative,” team Medical Director Dr. Riley Williams II said in a statement. “Yesterday during the game he reported a new onset of symptoms below the prior area of soreness. New imaging studies done today demonstrated the fracture. There is no timetable for his return. He will be re-assessed in one week.”

The team termed it a “fracture of the cartilage portion of the left 12th rib.”

Williams is averaging 13.9 points, 6.3 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 32 games this season.
