Anderson Varejao Returns, Won't Play Tonight Against Wizards

Anderson Varejao is back in Cleveland after spending over a week in Brazil following the death of his grandfather.  Varejao was at this morning's shoot-around, but head coach Byron Scott said Varejao is not ready for game action.

"He looked great and it was good to see him," Scott said. "Obviously we're going to bring him along slowly and get him up to speed conditioning-wise and what we're doing on both ends of the floor."

Of course, Andy is also recovering from an ankle injury he suffered against Spain in the World Championships.  The Cavaliers are being extra careful with Varejao's ankle and it is doubtful we'll see him until he is close to 100%.
