Baron Davis did not travel with his teammates to Milwaukee for tonight's game, but instead returned to Los Angeles following the death of his grandmother. No return date has been set.

Lela "Madea" Nicholson died Monday. Davis selected No. 85 as a tribute to his grandparents, since they raised him at their house on 85th Street in Los Angeles.

Davis had 19 points and six assists in Monday's loss to the Golden State Warriors. He is averaging 18 points and 5.7 assists in three games since joining the Cavs.

Center Semih Erden also did not make the trip to Milwaukee. He remained in Cleveland to rest and rehab his bothersome strained groin.
