Anderson Varejao Injury Update: Varejao Could Make Return On Friday Night

Back on February 16, Cleveland Cavaliers big man Anderson Varejao fractured his wrist and was put on the shelf for an expected time table of 4-6 weeks. On Friday morning, Varejao promptly returned to Cavaliers practice and may even be able to play in the team's game against the New York Knicks.

According to Mary Schmitt Boyer of The Plain Dealer, Varejao was seen taking shots in the shoot around with a heavily bandaged right wrist. Boyer also noted that there was a time that Varejao seemed to wince in pain after catching a pass and had to take a short break prior to returning to practice.

When asked about a possible return, Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott said that it was a conversation the he and general manager, Chris Grant would need to have with the team's medical staff prior to game time.

"I would love to shut him down but like we know Andy, he wants to play,'' Scott said via The Plain Dealer. "We'll see what the doctors say.''
