The Cavaliers will play tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers without 2009 All-Star guard Mo Williams, who is out with a shoulder sprain. Here’s the latest injury report from the Cavaliers.
Cavaliers guard Mo Williams suffered a left shoulder sprain during Tuesday night’s game versus Toronto at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. He was examined by Cavaliers Head Team Physician Dr. Richard Parker and the Cleveland Clinic’s Dr. Mark Schickendantz. Williams also received a MRI at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health, the results of which confirmed the sprain. Williams is currently projected to be out for the next four to six weeks. His status will be updated as appropriate.
Looks like Williams is going to be out longer than tonight, huh.
The Cavs are starting Delonte West in his place. Should be interesting to see how they Cavs function without him. He’s more than just a shooter, but West is a tougher player than Williams.
For Erie BayHawk fans, this lessens the probability Cleveland rookie Danny Green will get sent down to play for the BayHawks. Cleveland’s first attempt to send him down went astray when Jamario Moon when down with an injury.
Now with Williams out for at least a month, Green will likely stay put in Cleveland for now.
