Sad news today out of Cleveland.

Already out for an extended period of time due to knee surgery, Cleveland Cavaliers’ center Anderson Varejao will now miss the remainder of the season due to a blood clot he developed in his lungs.

The good news is that Varejao will fully recover. This comes from the Cavaliers’ official report:

“He will need to remain on blood thinning medication for approximately three months. While Varejao is expected to fully recover, he will miss the remainder of the current Cavaliers season.”

The 30 year-old Brazilian was in the midst of his best season, averaging 14 points and 14.5 rebounds a game, before injuring his knee in December.
