Though the Cleveland Cavaliers will travel to Indiana to play the Pacers on Tuesday evening, they will be without veteran swingmen Luke Walton and CJ Miles who have stayed home due to injury. Walton left Friday’s contest against the Boston Celtics in the first quarter due to a sprained ankle, an injury that also kept him out in the Cavaliers’ win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday evening. Miles, who had already been dealing with a tender foot, received six stitches after a wayward Nikola Vucevic elbow caught him in the forehead; he was later diagnosed with a concussion. Tristan Thompson will continue to get the bulk of the minutes at power forward while Wayne Ellington and Omri Casspi will likely split time behind Alonzo Gee at small forward. Daniel “Boobie” Gibson could figure into playing time at shooting guard, but he is listed as day-to-day with right elbow issues. Following their contest in Indiana, the Cavaliers finish up the season against the Detroit Pistons, New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat and Charlotte Bobcats.
