Dec. 26 2:16 PM PT3:16 PM MT4:16 PM CT5:16 PM ET22:16 GMT6:16 3:16 PM MST5:16 PM EST2:16 UAE (+1)23:1617:16 ET4:16 PM CT20:16 - Varejao has had surgery to repair a torn left Achilles tendon, an injury that ended his season and altered Cleveland's title hopes. The Cavs said Varejao's operation was performed Friday at the Cleveland Clinic by Dr. Brian Donley, who was assisted by team physician Dr. Richard Parker. There is no timetable for his return. Varejao injured himself Tuesday night in a win over Minnesota as he was battling for a rebound.
Analysis: The Cavs lost their first game without Varejao in Miami, and his injury will likely accelerate the team's search to find inside help. Tristan Thompson took Varejao's spot in the starting lineup against the Heat. Varejao has missed 166 games the past four seasons with injuries. Still, he was one of the team's best rebounders, which is why the Cavs signed him to a three-year, $30 million contract in October.
Dec. 23 5:02 PM PT6:02 PM MT7:02 PM CT8:02 PM ET1:02 GMT9:02 6:02 PM MST8:02 PM EST5:02 UAE (+1)02:0220:02 ET7:02 PM CT23:02 - A person familiar with the injury says Cavaliers starting center Anderson Varejao tore his Achilles tendon and will miss the rest of the season.
Analysis: Varejao was injured in Wednesday night's win over Minnesota, and an MRI confirmed the tear, said the person who spoke Wednesday to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not released information on the injury.
Nov. 29 2:34 PM PT3:34 PM MT4:34 PM CT5:34 PM ET22:34 GMT6:34 3:34 PM MST5:34 PM EST2:34 UAE (+1)23:3417:34 ET4:34 PM CT20:34 - Varejao is out against Indiana because of a rib contusion. He participated in Saturday morning's shootaround, but coach David Blatt said the 11-year veteran experienced discomfort and is being held out as a precautionary measure.
Analysis: Varejao, who was injured in Wednesday's win over Washington, is averaging 10.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and is third in the NBA in field goal percentage, shooting 61 percent.
Oct. 31 2:24 PM PT3:24 PM MT4:24 PM CT5:24 PM ET21:24 GMT5:24 2:24 PM MST4:24 PM EST1:24 UAE (+1)22:2417:24 ET3:24 PM CT19:24 - The Cavaliers have signed starting center Anderson Varejao to a contract extension. Terms of the deal were not immediately known, but the sides had been discussing a three-year, $30 million contract.
Analysis: Varejao was in the final year of a six-year contract he signed in 2008. He was eligible to become a free agent this summer, but the Cavs decided to lock him up for a few more seasons. Known for his non-stop energy on the floor, the 32-year-old Varejao has played in 535 games with Cleveland, averaging 7.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. He has appeared in a franchise-record tying 71 postseason games.
