Mo says West will play vs. Nets

INDEPENDENCE — Cavaliers coach Mike Brown wouldn’t confirm it, but injured point guard Mo Williams said Monday that fellow injured guard Delonte West would play Tuesday night against New Jersey.

West, who has missed the last eight games with a fractured ring finger on his left hand, went through a full practice at Cleveland Clinic Courts.

Williams has missed the last nine games with a strained left shoulder. He’s expected to be out at least another week.

Despite the injuries, the Cavaliers have won 11 straight games, which ties the NBA season high for this season.
