CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson has been released from a Boston hospital, where he was being treated for a neck infection.

Gibson is on his way back to Cleveland after spending two nights at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center with a "soft tissue" infection in his neck. Gibson stayed behind after the team played the Celtics on Sunday. He's being treated with antibiotics.

Cavs coach Byron Scott said Gibson will undergo more tests Wednesday in Cleveland. Scott said Gibson "is doing better" and the team is relieved he's out of the hospital.

Scott does not know when Gibson will return to action.

With both Gibson and Anthony Parker (back) out, Scott will start rookie Mychel Thompson at shooting guard.

Cleveland hosted Boston on Tuesday night.
