Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov is expected to miss 10 days to two weeks after straining his right deltoid Thursday night against Milwaukee.
Mozgov was injured during the second quarter of Cleveland’s 115–100 victory over Milwaukee and had an MRI Friday. The 29-year-old center is averaging 7.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.1 blocks this season.
The Cavs also announced that guard Mo Williams will miss Saturday‘s game against the Hawks with right ankle inflammation and is doubtful for Monday’s game against the Magic. Williams sat out on Thursday and also had an MRI on Friday.
Anderson Varejao and Tristan Thompson should assume additional minutes with Mozgov sidelined. Matthew Dellavedova filled in for Mozgov in the starting lineup Wednesday, recording seven points and 13 assists.
Cleveland is 9–3 and in first place in the Eastern Conference.
