Mo Williams' left knee continues to be a problem and he's seeking further treatment as a result.

According to Chris Haynes of cleveland.com, Williams is headed to New York Wednesday to receive a second opinion on his knee. Earlier this week, Williams visited Dr. James Andrews in Florida for the third time this season to receive treatment. Because of his trip to New York, Williams will not be available when the Cavaliers play the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday. He will, however, be in attendance.

Williams is dealing with chondromalacia, which is inflammation of cartilage under the kneecap, all season. At one point, the injury kept Williams on the sideline for a month. It is unclear what Williams' status will be for the playoffs.

For the Cavs, this isn't a huge deal. Williams hasn't played much and likely won't even if he's healthy. That being said, it's better to have the full roster available for the playoffs in case of injury. And despite his flaws, Williams is probably still capable of coming off the bench to provide shooting and scoring if the Cavs need it in a pinch.

For the year, Williams has appeared in 41 games and averaged 8.2 points and 2.4 assists.
