Report: Cavaliers' Anderson Varejao Done For Season With Broken Wrist

Saturday April 21st, 2012

For the second year in a row, Cleveland Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao has failed to finish out the regular season -- this time it's a broken right wrist that's cut short Varejao's campaign, according to the Associated Press.

Varejao played just 25 games for the Cavs this season, averaging 10.8 points and 11.5 rebounds per contest. He's been out since Feb. 10, when he injured the wrist in an overtime loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Cavs went 10-26 without Varejao. Coach Byron Scott told the AP that they could have won "10 to 15" more games with their big man in the lineup.
