Mo Williams out with hip injury

By Jason Lloyd Published: January 19, 2011

Cavs point guard Mo Williams is out indefinitely after receiving a cortisone shot Wednesday in his ailing left hip.

Williams has battled groin and hip injuries all season, and as a result is posting some of the worst shooting numbers of his career. He said last week the only reason he was still playing was because the rest of the roster was ravaged with injuries.

Williams said he'll miss a couple of weeks, although the team didn't put an official timeline on his return. He has already missed seven games this season because of the assorted injuries.

"Just want to get the pain out of there,'' he said. "That's the biggest thing.''

Ramon Sessions will start Wednesday night in his place.

"Obviously it’s a big loss," Cavs coach Byron Scott said. "Mo’s one of our leaders, one of our best scorers. He’s been doing a real good job directing the team. I feel good about Sess being there. He's very capable of running our team. Even though it’s a big loss, it gives us a big chance to develop him even more."

Sessions had 21 points and nine assists in the Cavs' loss Saturday at Denver after Williams left five minutes into the game.
