CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers starting rookie guard Dion Waiters will miss his second straight game with the flu.

Both Waiters and reserve guard Daniel Gibson are out for Wednesday's game against Utah. Waiters, selected the Eastern Conference rookie of the month in February, also missed Monday's game against New York along with rookie Tyler Zeller.

Zeller is feeling better. He practiced on Tuesday, took part in the shoot around and has been cleared to play. Wayne Ellington will make his second straight start for Waiters.

After Waiters and Zeller came down with the stomach bug over the weekend, they were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Cavs coach Byron Scott says some team family members have had the virus. Trainer Max Benton was out on Monday.
