PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson will miss at least two weeks because of a toe injury and center Zydrunas Ilgauskas likely has a sprained left ankle, the team's first significant setbacks of the season.
Ilgauskas limped to the locker room with 9:39 left in the fourth of Cleveland's 101-93 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday with an injured left ankle. He did not return.
X-rays were negative.
``(A) foot came down on me,'' Ilgauskas said. ``We think its a sprain. I'll see the doctor (Thursday).''
He had nine points and six rebounds in Cleveland's 10th straight win. Ilgauskas averaged 15 points and 7.7 rebounds entering Wednesday.
ose 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.
``It could affect us a little bit,'' forward LeBron James said. ``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.
