As if the Los Angeles Clippers didn't have enough to deal with, one of their most important pieces, reserve guard Mo Williams, is now out with an injury.
The Sixth Man of the Year candidate and the Clippers' third leading scorer will be out for at least a couple of weeks with an injured left big toe, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com.
"It's going to be at least a couple of weeks and then we'll re-evaluate him then," Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro tells ESPNLosAngeles.com. "It's going to be at least a couple of weeks, that's what the specialist said."
With Chauncey Billups already out for the year, Williams' presence has been that much more important and he's come through with averages of 13.6 points and 3.1 assists per game this season. Williams injured his toe during the Clippers' loss to the New Orleans Hornets on last Thursday and was evaluated over the weekend.
The Clippers will now have to rely on second-year guard Eric Bledsoe until Williams gets healthy.
