Cleveland Cavaliers big man Anderson Varejao will return to basketball activities in one to two weeks, according to the club. Varejao has not played since February 10th, when he injured his wrist in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks. While he will resume basketball activities and return to practice in the first or second week of April, it's still undetermined when he will return to game action, if at all.
Return to practice is projected for the first or second week in April, return to play would follow with specific timing based on progress.— Scott @ WFNY (@WFNYScott) March 23, 2012
It goes without saying that the Varejao injury was a huge blow to the Cavs season, as they were thin up front to begin with. Just this week, Ryan Hollins was bought out by the club and Byron Scott has decided to start Tristan Thompson at center for the remainder of the season.
