Zydrunas Ilgauskas took part in some of practice Wednesday, but clearly is still being bothered by his sore right knee. The team has listed him as questionable, and a decision as to his status against the Nuggets will likely be determined after shoot-around today. He missed Tuesday’s loss to the Hawks.
“It is one of these things that I can do it or I can’t; taking more time off won’t make it better,” Ilgauskas said. “Hopefully the swelling goes down enough that I can play through it.”
Brown held a closed-door meeting with LeBron James late Tuesday night after the Cavs’ loss and then met privately with Larry Hughes after practice Wednesday as the Cavs prepared to host the Denver Nuggets.
“I am disappointed in our effort,” Brown said. “You have to learn from it, grow from it and make sure your guys understood what happened.”
