Cavs guard Daniel Gibson will not play tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves because of flu-like symptoms. Gibson was sent home from practice Saturday afternoon and is not at the arena tonight.
Jamario Moon will start in his place. Moon is at small forward, as always, with Anthony Parker sliding back to shooting guard. Cavs coach Byron Scott chose Moon because of his length and athleticism in defending the Timberwolves' Michael Beasley.
Gibson is averaging 13.7 points per game this season.
