The Los Angeles Clippers are in search of their fifth straight home win Saturday night as they host the Los Angeles Lakers in the battle of Staples Center. The Clippers will be without backup point guard Mo Williams, who is out with a right foot injury, per Clippers' broadcaster Isaac Lowenkron.
Williams is averaging 10.4 points and 4.0 assists per game this season, playing 25.9 minutes per game mostly coming off the bench. Williams did start one game in place of an injured Chauncey Billups earlier this season. Williams has shot 47.2% from the field this season, his first season in a reserve role since the 2005-2006 campaign when he was with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Williams isn't the only reserve point guard unavailable Saturday night, as Steve Blake will miss three to four weeks for the Lakers with a rib injury.
