Daniel Gibson to Have Season-Ending Surgery

Yahoo Sports is reporting that Daniel Gibson will be undergoing season-ending ankle surgery to repair a torn tendon in his left foot. Gibson has been plagued with injuries this season and has played in only 35 games (seven starts), which is an all-time low. He's also averaged his worst FG% (.351), second worst 3PT% (.396) and second worst PT/36 (10.02) of his career. All-in-all, it's been a disappointing season for Boobie and with his team option for next year coming in at nearly $4.8M, it's hard to not wonder if Gibson's days in the Wine and Gold are numbered.

Now with Gibson out for the remainder of the season and Kyrie Irving listed as day-to-day due to a lingering shoulder injury, the Cavaliers guard rotation is pretty thin. If you thought things have been ugly lately, wait until you get to watch a guard rotation of Manny Harris, Donald Sloan and Anthony Parker play significant minutes. What's that? Maybe Alonzo Gee can play out of position at the SG? Oh good, more minutes for Omri Casspi and Luke Walton.

Get ready Cavs fans. April is here and it's gonna suck.
