Coach Byron Scott wanted Davis, acquired Feb. 24 from the Los Angeles Clippers, to get at least one more practice with the team before playing in a game. The guard, who practiced Monday and Tuesday, is expected to play Friday against New York or Sunday against New Orleans.
Davis has been bothered all season by a sore left knee, but Scott said the lack of practice time is the reason he has yet to make his debut with the Cavaliers.
Gibson was out with a quad injury. The injury has bothered Gibson before this season, but he wasn't listed on the pregame injury report.
Both teams were short-handed going into the game. San Antonio guard Tony Parker is out for two to four weeks with a calf injury. Cleveland forward Antawn Jamison likely will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on a broken little finger on his left hand.
