    Cavaliers' Anderson Varejao: Plays seven minutes in debut

    Anderson Varejao made his season debut for the Cleveland Cavaliers in Wednesday's 141-105 loss to the Trail Blazers, posting one point (0-4 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block in seven minutes.It was a whirlwind seven minutes for the veteran, who made his return to the Cavaliers after last playing in the NBA in 2016-17. A fan favorite in Cleveland, Varejao was brought in to provide some veteran leadership, but he's very unlikely to make much of an impact over the team's final six regular-season games. Varejao didn't check into Wednesday's game until late in the fourth quarter, when the Cavs were trailing by 27 points.

    Cavaliers' Anderson Varejao: Unlikely to play Tuesday

    Anderson Varejao, who officially signed a 10-day contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, is unlikely to be available for Tuesday's game against the Suns while he works his way into playing shape.Considering that Varejao hasn't played in the NBA since the 2016-17 season and hasn't played anywhere professionally since 2018-19, the 38-year-old will need some time to get fully conditioned. Since Cleveland will have seven players out Tuesday due to injuries, Varejao will still be active for the contest, but he's unlikely to leave the bench outside of an emergency. Even once the Cavaliers are comfortable with his conditioning, Varejao isn't expected to be a regular part of head coach J.B. Bickerstaff's rotation.

    Anderson Varejao: Clears waivers Sunday

    Anderson Varejao cleared waivers Sunday,'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

    Anderson 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.

    Warriors' Anderson Varejao: Logs six minutes in garbage time Thursday

    Anderson 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.
