Anderson Varejao is out for the year:
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for the Cavaliers, the team announced Sunday that center Anderson Varejao will miss the rest of the season with a torn peroneus longus tendon in his right foot that will require surgery.
This sucks on multiple levels. Short term, Andy was one of the reasons to sit through a Cavaliers game. Despite the losses and general terribleness, Andy showed up to play every night. He still hustled and played his ass off. My respect for him has definitely increased this season.
As for the long term, Varejao was one of the Cavaliers’ big trade pieces. His injury puts the kibosh on any “Andy + Boobie for James Harden” rumors.
Not sure what else to say. This sucks. Varejao’s the one guy who rebounded and played defense and gave a shit. Season of horrors continues.
