Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson injured his right ankle during the Cavaliers game in New Jersey against the Nets on March 19th. Initial x-rays taken at the Prudential Center following the injury were negative. Gibson received treatment during the remainder of the Cavaliers road trip to Atlanta and Orlando.
After returning to Cleveland, his ankle had not progressed as expected. An MRI and examination at the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Sports Health by Cavaliers Head Team Physician Dr. Richard Parker revealed a torn tendon in his right foot and ankle.
Gibson is undergoing further evaluation and seeking additional evaluations to determine the appropriate treatment. Updates on his treatment and subsequent recovery will be provided as appropriate.

The tape may be out. Forty-two games in to his NBA career, opposing defenses are starting to clamp down on rookie point guard Kyrie Irving. The result, at least if we are using ‘win total’ as a guage, has not been pretty with the team dropping four straight contests — seven of their last eight — with the most recent being a double-digit loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao plans to play for Brazil in this summer's Olympics as long as he's fully recovered from a wrist injury.
Varejao broke his right wrist on Feb. 11 in a game against Milwaukee. It's taken him longer to get back than expected, but the 6-foot-11 Varejao says he wants to play for Cleveland again in the final month of the season because '...
I’m not sure if there is such a thing as dog days of spring or not, but if there is, you could arguably say the Cleveland Cavaliers (17-29, 10th in the East) are there.
The excitement of trade deadline has passed, the thought of the Cavaliers making the playoffs has long passed, injuries to Anderson Varejao and Daniel Gibson, along with the trade of Ramon Sessions has left the...

At least not until the Olympics are over.

I wrote an article yesterday at Cleveland.com in support of the very real possibility that the Cleveland Cavaliers could bring Antawn Jamison back next season once his $15 million contract expires at the end of this one. At a reasonable contract number, with Antawn coming off the bench, I not only think it makes some sense for this team moving forward, but I also think there'...
The Cleveland Cavaliers have fallen apart, the team has played terrible basketball as of late and there is no end in sight to how poorly this team can play. The Cavaliers have been taking a beating in the four games, the Cavaliers almost looked tired out there. If I didn’t know the average age of these guy I would think they were tired. The 76ers handed the Cavs their fourth straight...
One word review: Horrible.
Nothing much else to say about this one. 19 assists to 18 turnovers for the Cavaliers compared to 25 assists to 10 turnovers for the Sixers. Right now, the Cavaliers are struggling to even be competitive in games.
The Cavaliers couldn’t get rookie Kyie Irving a win on his 20th Birthday weekend. The Cavaliers were completely dominated by the Phoenix Suns yesterday 108-83. For the Cavs they didn’t even look like they belonged in the same league as the Suns. The Cavs couldn’t lead any of the quarters and the game was pretty much over by half time. Friday the Cavs didn’t fair much better...
That was….better? The Cavaliers at least defended better and Kyrie Irving was really aggressive in trying to top Brandon Knight. But beyond that, the Cavaliers offense was pretty horrible in this game and the Pistons more or less were able to just coast to victory. Alonzo Gee was simply destroyed by Tayshaun Prince in this game, and that’s really what set the tone for the rest...
The Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons are both rebuilding, and it's clear that their rookie point guards continue to provide excellent building blocks.
Both seem to be slumping now.
Kyrie Irving and Brandon Knight are the league's top rookie scorers and meet for the third time Wednesday night when the Cavaliers host the Pistons.
Irving was chosen No. 1 by Cleveland...
Sloan, Harris get chance with Gibson out
The Cavaliers will have to adjust to playing without guard Daniel Gibson for likely the rest of the season. Not that he was having a great season. Just the opposite. His trusty jump shot had abandoned him for much of the season.Backup guards Donald Sloan and Manny Harris have been forced into major minutes. Both of them have left observers...
