Anderson Varejao: Out Indefinitely With Fracture in Wrist

Update: Varejao has a fractured wrist and is expected to miss at least a couple weeks, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Recommendation: The only good news is that the fracture is non-displaced. Varajeo underwent an MRI Saturday that revealed the fracture. He'll be reevaluated in a week to determine a timetable for his return. Some writers have speculated on Twitter that he could be out anywhere from two to eight weeks. Ryan Hollins and Semih Erden could both see increased playing time until he is healthy, but it is hard to imagine that either player will become consistently fantasy-relevant in standard leagues. Tristan Thompson would likely benefit from an increase in playing time if the Cavs use more small lineups, but fantasy owners will have to look outside of Cleveland to replace the 11.5 boards per game that Varejao has produced this year.
