Anderson Varejao: Done For Season

22 breaks the bad news: “Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for the Cavaliers, the team announced Sunday that center Anderson Varejao will miss the rest of the season with a torn peroneus longus tendon in his right foot that will require surgery. ‘It’s devastating,’ said Mo Williams. ‘Obviously he’s a big part of what we do offensively and especially defensively. It’s a tough one to swallow. It’s hard.’ Cavs coach Byron Scott said he had not talked to Varejao. ‘When I heard the news, I’m not going to say I didn’t buckle,’ Scott said before the Cavs faced the Suns in USAirways Arena. ‘A lot of it was because Andy’s been playing great. He’s been unbelievable. He’s arguably our best player and for him to go down that way — in practice on the last drill just running up and down the floor, no contact whatsoever –that’s tough.'”
