Either way, bad luck for Williams.
That's what happened to me. Infection showed itself on the ankle screws 5 months later so they took out the screws and gave me medicine. Two weeks later, the infection comes back even worse so they took all of the metal out. This put me back on crutches for another 3 months along with a 2x daile home-IV hookup to fight the infection.

This was worse-case stuff, along with the fatty embolism at the time of the break, but I am perfectly fine and have pushed my leg harder since than I had before the break. He will be fine and this isn't career-ending stuff but it's extremely optimistic to expect him back this season.
