INDEPENDENCE. Ohio (AP) -- Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson is in Boston getting tests on his injured neck.

Gibson did not play in Sunday's comeback win over the Celtics and did not return to Cleveland with the Cavs. A team spokesman said Gibson is at Beth Israel Hospital getting tested. The Cavs do not know when Gibson will return. Gibson said his neck began hurting during Friday night's game against New Jersey.

Also, Cavs starting guard Anthony Parker did not practice Monday because of a sore lower back. Parker played just 14 minutes against the Celtics.

Cavs coach Byron Scott said Gibson and Parker will both miss Tuesday's home game against the Celtics.

Scott said Parker was grimacing in pain during Sunday's game and asked to be taken out. Parker is averaging 6 points and 23 minutes.
