CLEVELAND -- Cavaliers center Zydrunas Ilgauskas will miss his third straight game on Wednesday to tend to family health matters.

The team said Ilgauskas did not travel to Toronto, where Cleveland will play its first game after the All-Star break against the Raptors. Ilgauskas also missed games last week at Utah and the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Cavaliers said guard Damon Jones has strep throat and didn't practice on Tuesday. He's listed as questionable against the Raptors.

Rookie guard Daniel Gibson is probable after sitting out last week's win over the Lakers with a sprained toe.
