Cavs' Varejao may play vs. Hawks, Brown says

Varejao's availability has not yet been determined, but Cavs coach Mike Brown said Thursday that Varejao could possibly play.
The Cavs (31-45) trail the Hawks by two games for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference -- making Friday perhaps the most-meaningful game since the Cavs were actually in the playoffs four years ago.
Varejao missed Wednesday's victory at Orlando with what the team is officially calling a "sprained right AC joint." He suffered the injury in a win over Indiana on Sunday.
He is averaging 8.6 points and 10.0 rebounds in 60 games.
