Ilgauskas misses 2nd straight game
LOS ANGELES -- Cleveland center Zydrunas Ilgauskas missed his second straight game Thursday night because of family health matters.
Ilgauskas stayed behind when the Cavaliers left for a two-game road trip that began with a 99-98 loss at Utah on Wednesday night and concluded in Los Angeles with a game against the Lakers.
The 7-foot-3 Ilgauskas had been the only Cleveland player to start every game this season. He is averaging 11.7 points and 8.2 rebounds.
Anderson Varejao filled in for Ilgauskas at Utah and had nine points and a career-high 17 rebounds.
