It is up to the specific judge. Some judges will conduct the Case Management Conference without a Case Management Statement from one party, especially if the other parties have complied. Other judges will continue the Case Management Conference, order the party to file a Case Manangement Statement, and possibly issue monetary sanctions payable to the court and/or opposing counsel.

It's essentially up to the individual judge on how to proceed. On the more lenient side, the judge may just hold the CMC anyway. On the stricter side, the judge may continue the CMC and sanction the offending party. Even if it wasn't filed timely, it is still in your best interest to compose a CMC statement before the CMC so you can answer questions the judge may pose to you if he/she decides to go forward with the CMC.
