CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The Cavaliers will be without guard Daniel Gibson when they travel to Brooklyn to play the Nets Saturday, as he sustained a concussion in the second quarter of the Friday night matchup against Atlanta.
He did not return to the game and will not travel with the team to New York for their game vs the Nets. Gibson has been placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol process and his status will be updated as appropriate.
Gibson was injured in the second quarter Friday night after being struck in the head and was down on the court for several minutes.
He was hit by Atlanta’s Anthony Morrow, who swung his arm around as the two players headed downcourt. Gibson was tended to by trainer Max Benton as all of Cleveland’s players left the bench area to check on him.
Gibson, who scored two points in 6 minutes, walked to the locker room under his own power. The Cavaliers announced Gibson was still being evaluated and would miss the remainder of the game.
