Z May Miss Final Two Games

Just when Z was beginning to hit his stride the Cavaliers center did not travel with the team to Utah today.

He may miss Cleveland’s final two games before the All-Star break because of personal matters.

Ilgauskas did not practice as the Cavaliers prepared for a two-game trip to play the Jazz tomorrow and the Los Angeles Lakers Thursday before the N-B-A’s regular season pauses for All-Star weekend in Las Vegas.

Until Ilgauskas returns, Cavs coach Mike Brown says he’ll start Anderson Varejao, who scored eleven points in the fourth quarter to help Cleveland beat the Lakers on Sunday.
