CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed point guard Cedric Jackson to a 10-day contract.

The move Saturday was prompted by injuries to Mo Williams and Delonte West in the past few days. The team lost Williams to a sprained shoulder and West to a broken finger.

Williams is out for at least one month, and the club doesn't know how long it will be without West. He was injured in Thursday night's win over the Lakers -- his first start replacing Williams.

Jackson, who played at Cleveland State, will give Cleveland some depth behind Daniel Gibson, who will start at the point Saturday night against Oklahoma City.

The 6-foot-3 Jackson averaged 14.7 points and 7.6 assists for Erie of the NBA Development League.
