CLEVELAND -- Cavaliers point guard Daniel Gibson didn't start Thursday night's 102-86 victory over Miami so he could be with his pregnant fiancee, singer Keyshia Cole.

Gibson recently moved into the starting lineup, filling in for injured guards Mo Williams and Delonte West. The Cavs announced Gibson's absence about 30 minutes before their game against the Heat.

Cavs general manager Danny Ferry said Cole, who is expecting her first child with Gibson, has been hospitalized for precautionary reasons. Gibson returned to Quicken Loans Arena in the second quarter.

Gibson said he watched part of the game on TV at home before heading to the arena.

"We had a long day," Gibson said, adding that Cole has not had the baby.

LeBron James started at point with Jawad Williams taking James' spot.
