Gibson to Miss Game Road Trip with Cavaliers Because of Injury

Cleveland point guard Daniel Gibson will be missing the Cavalier’s upcoming game road trip because of his sprained left ankle, his team said. This incident apparently added to the Cavalier’s last-place problem in the NBA playoffs.

Gibson is the team’s third-leading scorer. He is also a top player when it comes to defending the court. He injured his ankle while playing against Toronto, where they had 120-105 loss, last Wednesday.

The Cavaliers are currently hitting the rock-bottom as forwards Joey Graham and Leon Powe will also be missing the trip because of injury. The five-game road trip will begin on Friday in the Golden State.

The Cavaliers have been struggling since LeBron James left the team during the off-season to join the Miami Heat.

First, they lost ten games in a row. Currently, the team is in the middle of an eight-game losing streak with a crucial five-game road trip to begin.

They played poorly in most of their games. They had the most permeable defense in the season, and they have allowed opponents to make a record-setting number of shots.

Gibson badly injured his ankle and needs to stay in Cleveland to rest and recuperate, according to coach Bryon Scott. Gibson, in his Twitter account, said that his ankle was as “fat as a pterodactyl egg”.

However, it is still unknown for how long his recovery will take.

The Cavaliers already have the worst record in the NBA. They previously had a 10-game losing streak before they defeated the New York Knicks last December 18, which was the team’s last win.

Increased Peanut Consumption during Pregnancy May Later Develop to Allergy on Children

A study found that those children whose mothers consumed a lot of peanuts during pregnancy may be at greater risk to develop an allergy to the nuts. In addition, the more peanuts the mothers consumed, the greater the chances are for the children to develop it.

However, it still isn’t apparent if the mother’s consumption of peanuts can actually lead to the grave and potentially fatal allergy that seems to be on the rise, which is currently affecting about 1 percent of children.

The study was initiated by Scott Sicherer of Mount Sinai School of Medicine located at New York City, as well as a team of colleagues from five places across United States.

They studied 500 infants who likely had egg or milk allergy. However, these infants, aged between 3 and 15 months old, have no known peanut allergy, and most have not yet tried eating peanuts.

Researchers found that more than a quarter showed strong reaction in a “sensitivity test” with peanuts, and children of mothers who had eaten peanuts during pregnancy have about three times chance to show signs of the allergy.

However, the study reveals that consuming peanuts while the mother is breastfeeding did not appear to cause a significant effect on children.

Sicherer and his team explain that the children only underwent blood tests for peanut sensitivity. The test is not the same as those actually done to diagnose an allergy. The team is still continuing the study by following the children to identify what allergies may come and go.
