  • Anderson Varejao: Clears waivers Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Varejao cleared waivers Sunday, ESPN.com's Chris Haynes reports. Varejao, who was signed to a one-year deal for the veterans' minimum, wasn't able to attract attention from any teams after the Warriors waived him Friday. That doesn't close the door on Varejao resurfacing at the NBA level, however, as several teams were said to be interested in signing him once he cleared waivers. The aging center will likely look to latch on with a contending team at some point in the coming weeks.

  • Anderson Varejao: Waived by Golden State
    By RotoWire Staff

    Varejao was waived by the Warriors on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports. Even with Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) expected to be sidelined for at least a week, Varejao wasn't needed to provide much insurance at center, considering the Warriors already had JaVale McGee, Draymond Green, David West and Damian Jones on hand to cover the position. With the 34-year-old deemed an expendable piece, the Warriors will instead add depth at point guard, bringing in the defensive-minded Briante Weber on a 10-day contract. Varejao, who has made just 14 appearances on the season and is averaging 6.6 minutes per game, could sign with another team to provide some energy off the bench in the frontcourt, assuming he goes unclaimed off waivers.

  • Varejao posted two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 FT), one rebound and one assist across six minutes in a 127-107 loss to the Pistons on Thursday. Coach Steve Kerr dusted Varejao off for the veteran's first appearance since Dec. 22, with all of his minutes coming when the outcome was well in hand. Varejao is behind Zaza Pachulia, Draymond Green and JaVale McGee in the pecking order at center, and he's unlikely to enter the rotation unless at least two of those aforementioned players are out with injuries.

  • Warriors' Anderson Varejao: DNP in Sunday's win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Varejao, who started at center in place of Zaza Pachulia (wrist) on Saturday, did not play in Sunday's win over the Timberwolves. Apparently, Varejao got the start Saturday because Kevon Looney (ankle) had been unavailable. With Looney cleared to play Sunday, he entered the starting lineup while Varejao assumed his usual spot at the end of the Warriors' bench.

  • Varejao made his first start of the season Saturday, replacing the injured Zaza Pachulia (wrist), and went scoreless (0-2 FG) along with five rebounds, two assists and one steal over 18 minutes in Golden State's 110-89 loss to Memphis. This was just the seventh game played for Varejao, who had been averaging a mere 5.2 minutes per game prior to Saturday's start. Pachulia's wrist injury, something he played through Thursday, doesn't appear to be significant, so this should be a limited window of increased playing time for Varejao.
