Cleveland Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao had surgery Thursday to repair a small split in his vastus medialis muscle. He is expected to miss six to eight weeks.
The surgery comes as a result of a knee injury that occurred Dec. 18 during a game against the Toronto Raptors. It was performed by team head physician Dr. Richard Parker and Dr. Jim Rosneck.
