Zydrunas Ilgauskas hasn't been right since returning from a sprained ankle in mid-December. Neither has the Cavalier's offense. Now Z, who has been bothered by pain and stiffness in the ankle since the injury occured Dec. 10 will take the advice of Cleveland Clinic doctors and let the foot rest tonight against the Chicago Bulls.
There is no timeline on the return of Ilgauskas and the Cavs are likely to be very careful with the 7-3 big man who has had a plethora of foot injuries in his career.
Anderson Varejao will start in his place.
The Cavaliers are expected to get Wally Szczerbiak back into the lineup tonight after he missed the previous few games with a sore knee.
