Daniel Gibson separates shoulder against CelticsFormer Horn and current Cleveland Cavalier point guard [tag]Daniel Gibson[/tag] separated his shoulder against the Celtics Wednesday night. After an MRI on the injury the team estimated that he’d be out for at least one to two weeks, and that means he’s likely out of action for the rest of the playoffs. The Cavs are down three games to two against Boston and losing “Boobie” isn’t going to help them stay alive and win game 6.

Gibson’s minutes this postseason are down from last year due to the team’s addition of Delonte West midseason and Gibson missing time this season with other injuries. He averaged about 30 minutes and 12 points in the first round against Washington but against Boston his minutes are down close to 21/game and his points per game average is down to 5.6. He had a solid game in the clincher versus the Wiz and another good one Monday when he scored 14 while adding 6 rebounds and 4 assists.

It doesn’t look like the type of injury that will linger so hopefully Daniel recovers quickly. If the Cavs pulls the upset and keep rolling there’s a chance he could be back for the NBA Finals if they make it that far.
