Omri Casspi has appendix taken out
Omri Casspi missed his second straight game after having his appendix taken out on Friday night at an Orlando hospital. After the team's morning shootaround, Casspi began feeling ill and then was taken to the hospital before the game with acute pain. Trainer Max Benton was with him in Orlando and will accompany him back to Cleveland this morning. In addition, Daniel Gibson missed his second straight game to tend to a personal issue.
