Cavaliers’ Daniel Gibson out for season with foot injury

Daniel Gibson has been battling injury issues all season long. He’s played in just 35 games due to a host of neck and foot issues.

And now one of those foot issues — a torn tendon — has the shooter down for the season. The team thought it was a sprained ankle suffered back on March 19 (X-rays at the time were negative) but when it wasn’t healing right he got an MRI that discovered the tear.

This is an injury he could and will bounce back from, but with four weeks left in the season it’s hard to see him suiting up again until next fall.

Which is fine for Cleveland — they don’t need to make a playoff push, they need to make the lottery and get more players to put around Kyrie Irving.

    Cavs need another high pick anyways at the shooting guard or small forward position that can create their own shot and knock down open jumpers.
    Hopefully this draft fills the SG,SF, and/or Center slots.
