MIAMI -- Cleveland forward Jamario Moon returned to the court Monday night, checking in as a reserve during the first quarter of the Cavaliers' game against the Miami Heat.

Moon hadn't played since Jan. 3, and had missed 14 straight shots dating to Dec. 27 before getting hurt. Cavs coach Mike Brown said Moon was medically cleared in time for the team's shootaround practice Monday morning, and the team made the decision to use Moon against one of his former teams not long before game time.

Moon came into Monday averaging 5.0 points for the Cavaliers this season.
