Cavs trying to avoid a season-high seven-game losing streak against Milwaukee, but heavy snow and winds in Cleveland prevented them from flying there Friday night.
The Cleveland Cavaliers, going an ice-cold 1-12 in the month of December, got even colder on Friday.
After dropping a 99-89 decision to Indiana - their sixth straight defeat - they were snowbound in Cleveland after a winter weather advisory swept through northern Ohio.
They were supposed to depart Friday for Milwaukee, where they tip off against the Bucks at 8:30 p.m. ET Saturday, but instead had to delay the trip until Saturday morning, according to AP reporter Tom Withers.
Whether the flight was delayed or not, Anderson Varejao wasn't going to make the trip. The team kept him behind to receive treatment on his injured right knee.
It will be Anderson's third consecutive game missed, as the Cavs play to avoid their season-worst seventh consecutive loss, as well as their 18th consecutive loss to a Central division opponent.
