Daniel Gibson Has Sprained Ankle, Day-To-Day For Cavaliers

For more on the Cleveland Cavaliers, go to Fear The Sword.

The Cleveland Cavaliers can probably expect to be without Daniel Gibson for a short amount of time, but his injury status is a lot better than some initially thought. Gibson has an ankle sprain, but the x-rays were negative, and he's officially day-to-day in regards to his playing status, according to Fear The Sword. The news is sourced from this Tweet from The Plain Dealer:

Gibson left Monday's game against the New Jersey Nets with the injury, but there wasn't any news on what exactly was wrong with him until this Tweet. He's not an integral part of the Cavaliers on the court, averaging just 7.5 points per game and 2.9 rebounds per game throughout the 2011-12 season, with the former being down from his career average of 8.2 and the latter being up from his career average of 2.1.

His injury could make the way for some more playing time for guys like Manny Harris or Anthony Parker, though there's no official word on any missed time, so that's just speculation at this point.
