Anderson Varejao out another month or more
The Cavs finally put a timetable on Anderson Varejao (fractured wrist). He won’t need surgery, but will still be out 4-6 weeks.
If Varejao does actually get back in four weeks, he’ll have a chance to play in 25 games. But with the Cavs non-contenders and the damage to Varejao’s shooting wrist, that seems optimistic. Most owners are going to have to bite the bullet and move on from a quality preseason sleeper that was having a career year. Semih Erden is your starting center going forward, but is just a deep-league flier. Coach Byron Scott isn’t comfortable using No. 4 overall pick Tristan Thompson extensively yet.
