Anderson Varejao Not Ready for Return

Byron Scott’s Christmas gift to Anderson Varejao is simple: a little time off. Varejao missed the game Friday against the Indiana Pacers and he’s expected to miss the game tonight at the Milwaukee Bucks, too.
Varejao is still nursing a badly bruised knee he injured Tuesday in a loss to the Toronto Raptors. By holding him out this weekend, Scott can give the knee a full week to heal. The Cavs won’t play again until Wednesday at Washington.
“I think it’s important to get that knee as healthy as possible,” Scott said. “It’s nothing long term. You’re going to get banged up through the course of a season. But it’s better to miss three games than 33.”
“He’s going to have bumps and bruises,” Scott said. “You just hope he stays away from the serious injuries.”
