Mo Williams was scratched from tonight's opener against Boston as a precaution because of his injured groin. Ramon Sessions started in his place.
Coach Byron Scott called Williams "day to day" and wants him to get another hard practice or two in before returning to the court. Williams played in just one preseason game because of the injury, then missed five days recently to attend his father-in-law's funeral in Mississippi.
"We're probably a little overly cautious about this," Scott said. "It's my call to sit him tonight and see how he looks tomorrow in practice."
