Cleveland Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao: “I need to get rhythm back”


I seriously forgot the Cleveland Cavaliers had center Anderson Varejao still on their roster.

When Andrew Bynum gets healthy, the rotation between Varejao and Bynum is going to be a nasty combination. Both of these men are like skyscrapers and should compliment each other nicely. I expect their minutes to be split right down the middle, but as of right now Varejao looks like he may start ahead of Bynum who is slowly coming back.

Varejao figures he’s about 70 percent healthy so far as he missed nearly 60 games last season due to a blood clot and quad injury.

“I need to get rhythm back but it feels good. I’m very happy. I’ve been testing my quad in those pick up games, setting a lot of screens, going up for offensive rebounds — that’s my game.” Anderson Varejao told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Cleveland really needs both of their centers to remain healthy when they fully recover. It would be a shame to have two men who stand at 6’11 and 7’0, injured and watching from the bench instead of doing what they do best.
