MRI reveals Anderson Varejao has fractured wrist

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be without center Anderson Varejao for at least a few weeks.

Per Tom Reed of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Varejao suffered a fractured wrist in last night's one-point loss to the Bucks.

While the initial X-ray did not show a break last night, the MRI did today.

Varejao is averaging 10.8 points and 11.5 rebounds per game this season. Varejao ranks third on the team in scoring and first in rebounding.

Only 10 other NBA players are currently averaging a double-double in points and rebounds.

Cleveland (10-15) is currently in 10th place in the Eastern Conference standings, but they trail the Bucks, who are in eighth place, by only 1.5 games.
