  • Varejao pitched in two points (1-4 FG), 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two blocks in 27 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 99-84 win over the Pelicans. The absence of Kevin Love (quad) allowed Varejao to enter the frontcourt rotation, and he probably benefited from more playing time than anticipated after Timofey Mozgov made a number of poor offensive plays at the beginning of the game. Varejao didn't exactly set the court ablaze with his offensive skills, but he gave the Cavs good energy and forced Pelicans star Anthony Davis to earn his buckets. However, as long as Love's injury doesn't prove to be a long-term situation, Varejao can't count on regularly seeing more than 20 minutes in a game.

  • Varejao did not play in the win over Detroit on Friday. Varejao played 11 minutes and scored six points in the blowout win over Phoenix on Wednesday. He only plays in games that are out of hand.

  • Varejao delivered five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 17 minutes during the Cavaliers' 132-98 loss to the Warriors on Monday. Varejao has only taken the floor in three of the Cavaliers' nine games in the month of January. His 17 minutes on Monday marked the second highest total of the season, with his largest allotment of 19 minutes coming against the Hawks back on Nov. 21. Varejao is still able to provide energy in short spurts, but the 33-year-old veteran is not high enough on the pecking order at his position to hold value in fantasy.

  • Cavaliers' Anderson Varejao: Dropped from rotation
    By RotoWire Staff

    Varejao (coach's decision) hasn't played in the Cavaliers' last two games. The Cavs are back to full health now with the recent returns of Kyrie Irving (knee), Iman Shumpert (groin), and Mo Williams (thumb), and while none of those players are frontcourt options, the domino effect of their returns has squeezed Varejao out of the rotation while LeBron James spends more time at power forward. Varejao should remain active most nights, but he's unlikely to see the court unless Timofey Mozgov, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, or James succumbs to an injury or foul trouble.

  • Cavaliers' Anderson Varejao: Grabs three boards
    By RotoWire Staff

    Varejao provided four points and three rebounds in 10 minutes in the win over Orlando on Friday. Varejao did not play more minutes despite the blowout. It looks like he will play approximately as many minutes as James Jones (not a lot) and have very little fantasy value this season.
