Cavaliers Injury News: Anderson Varejao, Shaun Livingston

The Cleveland Cavaliers were without Anderson Varejao again last night.  The veteran center sat out the Christmas Day game with a bruised right knee.  It was the fourth-straight game he has missed because of the injury.

Royce Young of CBS Sports says Varejao did not even make the trip with the team yesterday to take on the Wizards.  He remained in Cleveland for treatment.

Varejao is averaging 14.1 points per game and 14.4 rebounds per game.  He is actually leading the Eastern Conference in rebounds per game.  Varejao's presence is important for any success the Cavaliers are going to have.  Unfortunately, he has been out and the team continues to struggle.  They are now 6-23 on the season.

Meanwhile, the Cavaliers made a roster move yesterday when they claimed Shaun Livingston.  The guard was waived by the Wizards and would have been a free agent had a team not put in a claim on him yesterday.  The Cavaliers did so with the team facing injury concerns and a lack of productivity.  To make room for Livingston, the Cavs waived guard Donald Sloan.
