CLEVELAND (AP) -Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson will miss at least two weeks because of a toe injury, the team's first significant setback of the season.
Gibson sprained his left big toe in the second quarter Tuesday night against Toronto. He didn't travel to Cleveland's game in Philadelphia, staying back Wednesday to be examined by Dr. Jim Sferra at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health and to undergo an MRI and X-rays. The team said he didn't provide results of those tests.
One of the Cavs' top reserves and outside shooters, Gibson is averaging 9.4 points and 24 minutes for the Cavaliers, who have won nine straight and are 17-1 since Nov. 3.
With a 114-94 romp over the Raptors, Cleveland became the first team in NBA history to win nine games in a row by at least 12 points.
Gibson has begun to find his touch after being in a prolonged shooting slump. He has averaged 13.8 points and made 8 of 14 3-pointers in four games this month.
Philadelphia. ``Guys have to step up. One thing we have is a lot of depth on our bench. We could continue this run if we stay injury free.''
Cavs coach Mike Brown will likely extend the minutes for guards Mo Williams and Delonte West until Gibson returns. Also, reserve Sasha Pavlovic can play in the backcourt and may get more playing time.
``Hopefully, we don't have any more injuries,'' Brown said.
