Varejao will sit tonight. Blatt said it's a maintenance issue not an injury issue
Blatt expects Varejao and Love will both be available tmrw after both banged their knees tonight. He doesn't think either is serious
Cavs 81, Bucks 79, end third Q. Varejao came out after bumping knees
I'd assume both Love and Varejao are done for the night.
Now it's Varejao out there limping. The rookie Kirk comes in for him.
Varejao comes right out of game.
Andy Varejao now hobbling after taking one to the knee. He is headed to the bench.
Tristan Thompson (R shoulder) is out tonight. Varejao will start at C for the Cavs
Tristan will not play tonight. Varejao starting at center
Ran into Marcus Delacqua, who said he's Varejao's brother-in-law, in the hotel last night. Cool shirt. http://t.co/13yFfphKDb
As you would expect, Anderson Varejao emotional as he's on the podium addressing media. Says this is an experience he'll remember forever.
Varejao should feel betrayed the way this crowd is cheering for Heat. They may all convert to Basketballism before midnight
Crowd just randomly breaks into a "Varejao" chant during timeout. He stands from his seat on the bench.
Crowd chanting, I think, for Varejao to return. But that's not happening. So he stands and acknowledges crowd. Seemed to appease them
When the Cavs and Lakers talked about a Pau trade last year, LAL repeatedly expressed interest in Varejao to no avail. You can see why today
Actually, Varejao is providing plenty of highlights for the Brazilian crowd to enjoy. Cavs have scored 7 straight to stretch the lead to 12.
Varejao playing inspired with 12pts, shooting 6/8. LeBron has 6 assists in 14mins, in part because he's shooting 1/5 & even missed pair FTs
In the meantime it's the Andy Varejao show. He has 10 points and two boards in eight minutes. His country is going crazy.
I take that back: this is a Varejao crowd.
For the Cavs: Dellavedova, Waiters, LeBron, Love, Varejao.
Varejao addressing the arena before the game and now the arena chanting his name.
Bosh, Varejao addressing crowd. I have no idea what Andy is saying, but the crowd seems to be liking it.
Chris Bosh & Anderson Varejao welcome the crowd. Bosh throws in an "Obrigado." Varejao, naturally, speaks in Portuguese throughout.
Huge ovation for LeBron James as he is introduced. Not surprising but even louder ovation for Anderson Varejao.
LeBron receives ridiculous applause from the crowd when introduced in starting lineup, but it couldn't trump Varejao
LeBron James doesn't get the last intro for the Cavaliers today. This is Anderson Varejao's country.
Final practice before Cavs play Heat and Anderson Varejao is in with first team. Tristan Thompson on second unit. Could be Brazil gesture...
For one week, Anderson Varejao just might be more popular than LeBron. Here he is holding court with Brazilian media http://t.co/uacIDrkCdB
