The Cleveland Cavaliers may be down a man tonight vs. the Milwaukee Bucks.

According to the Cavs, guard Mo Williams is questionable for tonight's game with a sore lower right leg.

While its unclear when Williams' soreness began, his absence would certainly hurt the Cavs. With Kyrie Irving out to stop the season, Williams has filled in nicely at point guard. In 11 games - all of which have been starts - Williams is averaging 15.5 points per game while shooting 47.7 percent from the field. If he in unable to play, Matthew Dellavedova would be the likely starter at guard and he would likely play more than the 25.9 minutes per night that he's currently playing on average.

Williams' absence would also likely mean that LeBron James would handle more of the Cavs' ball handling responsibilities. Irving, Williams and Dellavedova are the only three point guards on the Cavs roster and if two of them are unable to play, that has to mean that LeBron will take on a bigger role than he normally does.
