Recommendation: Varejao is expected to fully recover, but with him already facing a lengthy absence after undergoing quad surgery, and the Cavaliers a long shot to make the playoffs, the team decided it was best to shut him down for the rest of the current campaign. With Varejao out for the rest of the season, expect Tristan Thompson and Tyler Zeller to see heavy minutes the rest of the way.
Update: Varejao was recently hospitalized with a blood clot in his right lung and will miss the rest of the season, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
