Mo Williams out tonight against Lakers

Cavaliers guard Mo Williams suffered a left shoulder sprain during Tuesday night's game versus Toronto. He is currently being evaluated at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health and will be OUT for tonight's game versus the Los Angeles Lakers. His status will be further updated this afternoon.

That means the Cavaliers will need a big night from Delonte West, and Boobie Gibson will likely have to dust-off his jump-shot as well.  William scored a season-high 28 points against the Lakers on Christmas Day.

"It's tough," Head Coach Mike Brown said. "But I like the guys in this locker room and I'm confident other guys will step up. It's part of the business. You hope he gets better soon but you have to keep going forward."
