Warriors' Anderson Varejao: Suffers shoulder contusion

Varejao was held out of Monday's practice with a shoulder contusion, Anthony Slater of Bay Area News Group reports.

The severity of the injury is currently unclear, but considering it's just a bruise, it doesn't seem like it will cost Varejao an extended absence. With that said, the Warriors' next preseason game is Wednesday versus the Lakers, so it remains to be seen if Varejao will be cleared for that outing. Even when he returns to full strength, Varejao will likely struggle to get significant minutes on a stacked Warriors' roster.
