NEW YORK (Reuters) - Cleveland guard Daniel Gibson will miss the Cavaliers' five-game road trip because of a sprained left ankle, the team said, adding to the last-place Cavaliers' problems.
Gibson, Cleveland's third-leading scorer and a top defender, injured the ankle in a 120-105 loss to Toronto on Wednesday.
The Cavaliers (8-27) have the worst record in the NBA with eight consecutive losses. They earlier had a 10-game losing streak before defeating the New York Knicks on December 18, their last win.
