Cavs’ Varejao not facing Raptors
Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao stayed in Cleveland with his
father who underwent heart surgery and will not travel to Toronto
for Friday’s game against the Raptors.
There was a chance Varejao, who recently left the Cavs after his
grandfather’s death in Brazil, would rejoin the team after his
father’s operation. He may rejoin the team for Saturday night’s
home game against Sacramento.
Cavs coach Byron Scott said starting guard Mo Williams remains a
game-time decision against the Raptors. Williams was sidelined for
much of training camp and the exhibition season with a groin
injury. Williams also missed five days last week to attend his
father-in-law’s funeral in Mississippi.
