12/2/2014 5:58:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao will start Monday against the Bucks.
Insight: Varejao is back after missing one game. Tristan Thompson will move back to the bench.
 
12/2/2014 11:22:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao is still listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee due to bruised ribs, but after practicing Monday we expect him to play.
Insight: Varejao (10.9 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 1.6 apg) missed Saturday's game despite going through the shootaround that morning so it's not a guarantee. Tristan Thompson, double-double on Saturday, is a viable option if Varejao doesn't play
 
12/1/2014 11:20:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao is questionable for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee due to bruised ribs.
Insight: Varejao (10.9 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 1.6 apg) missed Saturday's game despite going through the shootaround that morning, so he's close and should return Tuesday versus the Bucks.
 
10/22/2014 6:34:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao's double-double days are long gone.
Insight: Varejao had a 50-game stretch in his career where he was a double-double threat every night, but Varejao is too injury prone for that this season. He will also battle Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson for playing time and rebounds.

Description: Cavs center Anderson Varejao is active for Friday night's game against the Hawks. SOURCE: Cleveland Plain Dealer
Insight: He missed a game earlier this week with a shoulder injury. It's unknown if Varejao will be on any kind of minutes restriction. Either way, it's hard to trust him with Spencer Hawes averaging 30 mpg.
 
4/3/2014 8:39:00 PM
Description: Cleveland center Anderson Varejao has a chance to play Friday against Atlanta. SOURCE: Cleveland Plain Dealer
Insight: Varejao (8.6 ppg, 10.0 rpg) missed Wednesday's game after suffering a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder. He hasn't been as useful to fantasy owners since the team acquired Spencer Hawes from Philadelphia at the trade deadline (7.8 ppg, 8.8 rpg for Varejao since the All-Star break).
 
3/31/2014 6:35:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao (sprained shoulder) will miss Wednesday's game against the Magic, according to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal.
Insight: Varejao (8.6 ppg, 10 rpg) has a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder. His absence will allow Spencer Hawes and Tyler Zeller to get more minutes.
 
3/30/2014 4:38:00 PM
Description: Cavs center Anderson Varejao sprained his shoulder early in Sunday's game against Indiana and is unlikely to return. SOURCE: Bob Finnan, The News-Herald
Insight: He had six points and six rebounds before exiting. Spencer Hawes (13.2 ppg, 8.3 rpg) has been playing more than Varejao anyway so this shouldn't affect many fantasy teams.
 
3/18/2014 10:12:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao played 26 minutes Tuesday against the Heat, his most since he returned from his back injury.
Insight: Varejao also had his first double-double since he returned and finished with 16 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and a block. His increase in playing time came at the expense of Tristan Thompson, who played just 21 minutes and had 10 points after scoring 7.0 ppg on .333 shooting his previous six games.
 
3/11/2014 5:44:00 PM
Description: The Cavaliers will gradually increase center Anderson Varejao's minutes, according to news-herald.com.
Insight: Varejao missed 12 games due to a back injury and played nine minutes in his return Sunday. With Anthony Bennett out at least three weeks with a knee injury, the Cavs will be able to give Spencer Hawes and Varejao enough minutes to make both players solid fantasy options.
 
3/8/2014 6:07:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao is expected to play Saturday but only for one stint, according to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal.
Insight: Varejao (8.8 ppg, 10.3 rpg) missed the last 12 games due to back, knee and wrist injuries. The team acquired Spencer Hawes from the Sixers while Varejao was out and will continue to start him even after Varejao returns.
 
3/8/2014 11:42:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao didn't play Friday against Charlotte, didn't even make the trip, so Saturday is also unlikely.
Insight: Varejao (8.8 ppg, 10.3 rpg) is dealing with back, knee and wrist injuries. Spencer Hawes Hawes is playing well with Cleveland averaging 14.7 points, 2.1 threes (53.6 percent from downtown), 9.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 blocks in seven games and is worthy of fantasy consideration.
 
3/6/2014 3:52:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao (back, knee, wrist) won't play Friday against Charlotte. SOURCE: Bob Finnan, The News-Herald
Insight: Varejao (8.8 ppg, 10.3 rpg) is dealing with back, knee and wrist injuries and will miss his 12th straight game. Spencer Hawes will likely retain his starting job even after Varejao returns as the team will probably have to ease him back in after the long layoff.
 
3/4/2014 1:14:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao (back, knee, wrist) is not expected to play Tuesday against the Spurs, though coach Mike Brown left the door slightly open by saying his chances are "slim."
Insight: Varejao (8.8 ppg, 10.3 rpg) is dealing with back, knee and wrist injuries and will likely miss his 11th straight game. Spencer Hawes likely will retain the starting job even after Varejao returns, as the team will have to ease Varejao back into action after the long layoff.
 
3/3/2014 5:34:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao (back, knee, wrist) is not expected to play Tuesday against the Spurs.
Insight: Varejao (8.8 ppg, 10.3 rpg) is dealing with back, knee and wrist injuries and will miss his 11th straight game. Coach Mike Brown said Monday that Spencer Hawes likely will retain the starting job even after Varejao returns, as the team will have to ease Varejao back into action.
 
2/28/2014 5:16:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao (back, knee, wrist) will not play Friday, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

2/25/2014 6:24:00 PM
Description: Cleveland center Anderson Varejao (back, knee, wrist) is unlikely to travel to Oklahoma City for Wednesday's game, according to beat writer Rick Noland.
Insight: Varejao (8.8 ppg, 10.3 rpg) is dealing with back, knee and wrist injuries and will probably miss his seventh straight game. The team acquired Spencer Hawes at the trade deadline and is expected to start him Wednesday.
 
2/25/2014 6:24:00 PM
Description: Cleveland center Anderson Varejao (back, knee, wrist) is out for Friday's game with Utah, though he did participate in the morning shootaround.
Insight: Varejao (8.8 ppg, 10.3 rpg) is dealing with back, knee and wrist injuries. Newly-acquired Spencer Hawes has averaged 16.7 ppg and 8.6 rpg over his last three games.
 
2/22/2014 4:01:00 PM
Description: Cleveland center Anderson Varejao did some shooting, but will not play Sunday.
Insight: Varejao (8.8 ppg, 10.3 rpg) is dealing with back, knee and wrist injuries and will sit out for the fifth straight game. Tyler Zeller and Anthony Bennett have been picking up some extra playing time in Varejao's absence, but this is the reason the team traded for Spencer Hawes.
 
2/19/2014 12:32:00 PM
Description: Cleveland center Anderson Varejao will not play Wednesday against the Magic, according to Bob Finnan of news-herald.com.
Insight: Varejao (8.8 ppg, 10.3 rpg) is dealing with back, knee and wrist injuries and will sit out for the fourth straight game. Tyler Zeller and Anthony Bennett have been picking up some extra playing time in Varejao's absence. Both had double-doubles Tuesday while combining for 28 points and 26 rebounds.
