Varejao Blanket Night at Quicken Loans Arena. bit.ly/1BtkXmo http://t.co/r4eVGNpgs5

Brendan Bowers

Big ovation for Anderson Varejao who was just featured on jumbotron at Q #Cavs http://t.co/1EyYuJiAuh

Bob Finnan

Not sure why Cavs center Brendan Haywood is inactive. Only one player has to be inactive (Andy Varejao) since Cavs have only 14 on roster.

Chris Fedor

So now Brian Hoyer may be interested in returning to Cleveland? Right when they replaced him w/ Anderson Varejao on those Mr Hero billboards

Dave McMenamin

Contributing to this good karma night for the Cavs: Andy Varejao is back on the bench with the team, his L leg in a walking cast.

Bob Finnan

Just ran into Andy Varejao in the hallway. He's wearing a cast and is using a 4-wheel cart to get around. He probably won't play tonight

Matthew Dellavedova

Glad to have you on board mate! Repost: @varejaoanderson "Carn' the Pies!! My Australian Football team… instagram.com/p/yNhBB9Th7X/

Demian Belmonte

Esta dolencia del bosnio, es la misma que sufrió Anderson Varejao la temporada 2012-2013.

Alex Kennedy

Anderson Varejao got his blood clot after surgery, which is fairly common. Getting one randomly is scarier and means more could occur later.

Chris Haynes

Anderson Varejao isn't walking through that tunnel anytime soon. No more pick-and-roll passes to Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov!

James Ham

Kings/Cavs Inactives - Kings - Eric Moreland, Ramon Sessions CLE - LeBron James, Anderson Varejao

Bill Herenda

#Kings v #Cavs injuries LeBron James (L knee low back strain) Schumpert (LShoulder) Varejao (Achilles) -out Marion (L hip strain) -doubtful

Chris Fedor

Cuz I think it's worth mentioning: it's pronounced team-oh-fay mozgov. Then again for years people added an "n" to the end of Varejao. So...

Eric Pincus

Lakers wouldn't be open to taking Varejao naturally - and Cavs won't deal LBJ/Love - so there was no Jordan HIll workable deal

Tom Haberstroh

Rim protection rankings per @SethPartnow's metric: Koufos 6th Mozgov 34th T. Thompson 51st Varejao 56th Kevin Love 119th

Eric Pincus

My estimates yesterday on the 3-way trade were all accurate - Varejao DPE, Sefolosha TPE, new TPE for Smith, Shump & Thomas @BBallInsiders

Eric Pincus

I'll know the actual details of the 3-way trade shortly - my take is Cavs used Varejao DPE on Iman Shumpert (not official)

Jason Lloyd

#Cavs used Disabled Player Exception from Varejao injury in tonight's trade. Still have $5.2ish million trade exception to pursue a big man

Ethan J. Skolnick

David Blatt keeps reminding reporters that Cavs recently lost Varejao too. Different than the "no excuse team" coaching approach I'm used to

Kevin Pelton

From today's Insider Daily, Cavs -11.2 per 48 with either Love/Thompson on the bench since Varejao injury: es.pn/1xx6fgj (In)

Dwain Price

#Mavs at #Cavs at noon Sunday. No LeBron and Varejao, so Mavs should go into Monday's game in Brooklyn with a 25-10 record.

Dave McMenamin

Kyrie Irving 42 minutes, Tristan Thompson 43 minutes tonight with no LeBron/Varejao.

Eric Pincus

Added what I believe to be the amount of the Anderson Varejao DPE $4,852,273 @BBallInsiders Cleveland Cavaliers basketballinsiders.com/cleveland-cava…

Marcelo Bousquet

Cavs y Lakers tienen Trade Exception de 4.9M x las lesiones de Varejao y Nash respectivamente. Pueden fichar o cambiar jugadores x esa plata

Chris Sheridan

With no LeBron, Kevin Love and Varejao hurt, #Cavs look an awful lot like last couple of seasons sheridanhoops.com/2015/01/01/leb…

Chris Fedor

#Cavs granted disabled player exception in wake of Anderson Varejao's Achilles injury cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

Bob Finnan

Source confirms #Cavs get $4.9M disabled-player exception for the injured Anderson Varejao. First reported by NE Ohio Media Group

Jim Paschke

LeBron, Marion, Love, Varejao out for Cleveland. Bayless out with sore knee for Bucks.

Kurt Helin

Report: Cavaliers granted disabled player exception for Anderson Varejao dlvr.it/7zTPTR

Chris Haynes

Can confirm #Cavs granted $4.9 million Disabled Player Exception for Anderson Varejao injury. Player in return has to be 1-year deal.

Marc Stein

ESPN sources say Cavs were today formally granted a Disabled Player Exception after losing big man Anderson Varejao for the season

Amin Elhassan

Watch how young Anderson Varejao looks eerily like Travis Knight in this cool feature espn.go.com/espn/feature/s…

Dave McMenamin

Cavs announce Varejao had successful surgery today to repair his L Achilles. No timeline provided for his recovery, however.

Jeff Zillgitt

For at least the Heat game, Cavs put Shawn Marion back in the starting lineup, at the four, in place of injured Anderson Varejao. Love at C.

Marc J. Spears

Cavs doing their due diligence but are in no rush to try to find a replacement for Varejao, a source said. Cleveland intrigued by small ball

Ethan J. Skolnick

LeBron on Varejao injury: "He can't catch a break."

Ethan J. Skolnick

David Blatt indicates that he could go with smaller lineups without Varejao. He finally started playing Marion at 4 recently.

Ethan J. Skolnick

David Blatt says he had same injury as Anderson Varejao: "We all know that's season ending.... Andy was a little down."

Matthew Dellavedova

Terrible news @Anderson Varejao- thinking of you mate! We will miss having you out there #GREATteammate #wildthing

Chris Haynes

Prior to Varejao going down, #Cavs have made a call looking into Josh Smith, league source says. But told it was more of due diligence.

Chris Mannix

Anderson Varejao is a huge loss for Cleveland. Cavs were already efforting to acquire another big. Expect those efforts to be ratcheted up.

Adrian Wojnarowski

Cleveland center Anderson Varejao has suffered a torn Achilles tendon and will miss the rest of the season, league source tells Yahoo Sports

Adrian Wojnarowski

As Cleveland's Anderson Varejao undergoes MRI on ankle at this hour, source close to him tells Yahoo: "It does not look good at all."

Jorge Sierra

Josh Smith a starter in Houston? + Anderson Varejao to miss time? bit.ly/1hKUSdo

Ethan J. Skolnick

Officially, Anderson Varejao has a left foot/ankle injury, will not return tonight & will be evaluated tomorrow.

Sam Amico

Cavs coach David Blatt said Anderson Varejao will start at center vs Bucks. Varejao missed last game with a rib injury.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs C Anderson Varejao (bruised rib) took part in practice Monday and will likely face Bucks Tuesday. Coach Blatt wouldn't say he'd start

Dave McMenamin

Varejao (rib contusion) is out tonight. Tristan will start. Blatt: "Nothing too, too serious. Holding him out as a precautionary measure"

Chris Haynes

#Cavs C Anderson Varejao (rib contusion) was held out of practice today. He's questionable for Saturday's game versus Pacers.
