Boobie not ready

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

It appeared as if Cavs guard Boobie Gibson was ready to return to practice, possibly on Thursday in Denver.

But that's not the case. Gibson is still plagued by soreness in his left big toe, he said after Wednesday's game in Minnesota.

Gibson was injured in the Dec. 10 Philadelphia game at Quicken Loans Arena. He's missed the last four games, and he definitely won't play against the Nuggets on Friday.

"It’s hard to say (when I'll be back)," Gibson said. "I’m going day to day. I’ve started shooting drills. I’m not ready for full-contact drills."

The biggest problem is he's unable to push off. When he does, there's a lot of pain. He could miss the entire 3-game road trip.
