Cavaliers' Anderson Varejao Still Sidelined With Broken Wrist

Tuesday March 13th, 2012

There's still no good news on the health of Cleveland Cavaliers big man Anderson Varejao -- Cavs coach Byron Scott says the center's broken right wrist will not be re-examined by doctors until next week, according to the Associated Press.

Varejao broke the wrist during the Cavs' loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Feb. 10. The team originally expected him to miss 4-6 weeks but said he might return sooner. But now, more than a month later, Varejao continues to wear a wrap over the wrist and has not resumed basketball activities.

The Cavs are attempting to make a playoff push without Varejao. After losing eight of their first 11 games without the big man, they've since won three straight, and they now trail the New York Knicks by only one game for the final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
