Deron Williams has missed five games since undergoing cortisone shots and platelet-rich plasma injections in both of his ankles.

He is expected to return for Monday's road game against the New York Knicks.

"That's the plan," Williams said.

Williams is averaging 13.6 points and 6.9 assists this season.

"It'll be great, another guy who can really put pressure on the defense and make plays and help us out," Joe Johnson said of Williams' pending return. "Right now, we're really battling with one point guard, Shaun Livingston. If we get Deron back, that'll really mean a lot."
