CLEVELAND -- Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson, hospitalized last week in Boston with a "soft tissue" infection in his neck, practiced Monday for the first time in 10 days and is traveling with the team for Tuesday's game at Miami.

Gibson says he's feeling better and is eager to play.

With Gibson's return, the Cavaliers waived rookie guard Mychel Thompson.

Thompson had started the past three games for the Cavs. He averaged 3.6 points and 19 minutes in five games.

On Tuesday, Cavs guard Anthony Parker (back) is expected to miss his fourth straight game with a sore lower back and rookie forward Tristan Thompson still hasn't recovered from a sprained left ankle.
