Anderson Varejao: (Knee) Expected To Miss Six-To-Eight Weeks
Update: Varejao (knee) will undergo surgery Thursday and is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks.

Recommendation: This is rough news for the Cavs and fantasy owners, as it appears both could be without Varejao's services for up to two months. For what it's worth, Varejao has missed over 100 games in the past three season due to injuries. It would hardly be surprising if the team shut him down for the rest of the season, so if you need the roster spot, we wouldn't blame you for cutting bait. Tristan Thompson, who is averaging 14.6 points and 13.0 rebounds per game over the past five games, should continue to thrive in his absence. Tyler Zeller, who is averaging 8.1 points and 5.4 rebounds in 26.0 minutes per game this season, should continue to start at center and see plenty of minutes.
