The Utah Jazz will be without their starting point guard for a while. The team announced Sunday that Mo Williams has injured his right thumb and will be out indefinitely.

Williams injured the thumb in Utah's loss to the Miami Heat on Saturday. A subsequent MRI revealed damage, but it is unknown exactly what the injury is or how long it will keep Williams out of action.

Williams is averaging 12.9 points and 6.7 assists in his first season with the Jazz. Jamaal Tinsley will start in Williams' place.
