Anderson Varejao remains out with knee injury

Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao is out for Cleveland’s game against Sacramento because of a bruised right knee.

Varejao, the NBA’s leading rebounder, will miss his seventh straight game. He hasn’t played since Dec. 18 when he injured the knee against Toronto.

Varejao returned to practice in a limited role Monday, but hasn’t gone through contact drills.
