Cavs starting center Mozgov out 2 weeks with shoulder injury
CLEVELAND (AP) Cavaliers starting center Timofey Mozgov could miss two weeks with a strained shoulder.
Mozgov was injured in the first half of a win Thursday night over Milwaukee and did not return in the second half. An MRI taken Friday revealed a strained right deltoid, and the team said he will be out at least 10 days.
Mozgov is averaging 7.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 20.8 minutes per game for the Cavaliers, who at 9-3 have the Eastern Conference's best record.
Also, Cavs starting point guard Mo Williams will miss a game Saturday against Atlanta with a sore right ankle. Williams, who is running Cleveland's offense while Kyrie Irving continues to recover from surgery to repair a broken kneecap suffered in the NBA Finals, is averaging 15.5 points.
Matthew Dellavedova started for Williams against the Bucks and had a career-high 13 assists in 38 minutes.
