Cavaliers Daniel Gibson Out With Torn Tendon

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson has a torn tendon in his left foot and ankle, which could keep him off the court for the rest of the season, according to USA Today.

Gibson underwent an MRI yesterday that revealed a torn tendon. He is currently seeking further evaluations to determine what his treatment options will be.

"I know we're going to continue to do further evaluation on him," coach Bryant Scott said yesterday. "We've got the best doctors in the world at the Cleveland Clinic. They want to figure out the best way to kind of handle the situation."

With just a month left in the season it is unlikely that Gibson will recover in time to finish. He was averaging 7.5. points and 2.2 assists in 35 games for Cleveland.
