 CLEVELAND (AP) -Cavaliers starting forward Drew Gooden traveled with his teammates to Houston on Wednesday, one day after straining his right groin during the third quarter of a win over Boston.
Gooden, who injured himself on a putback dunk in the Cavs' 114-113 win, underwent an MRI that confirmed the injury. Gooden was held out of a light workout before the team departed for Thursday night's game against the Rockets.
The Cavaliers said Gooden is day-to-day and his status will be updated following Thursday's shootaround.
Gooden, averaging 11.3 points and 8.5 rebounds, said he didn't expect to miss any time and the Cavaliers can't afford him to be without him very long. They're already missing forward Anderson Varejao and guard Sasha Pavlocvic.
Cleveland is 15-4 since Dec. 25. After facing the Rockets, the Cavaliers will play at Atlanta on Friday before returning home to face Denver on Sunday.
