M.S. Boyer and J. Valade, who cover the Cavaliers at for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, tweeted the following on Varejao's status.
Anderson Varejao (sprained right AC joint) expected to join #Cavs FRI in Atlanta. There's a chance he could play vs. Hawks, Mike Brown saysWith the acquisition of Spencer Hawes from the Philadelpiha 76ers, Varejao has been used in a reserve role. Nevertheless, the Cavaliers are a better team with him as part of the front court rotation than without Tyler Zeller backed up Hawes against the Magic and had four points, three rebounds and two blocks in 19 minutes. Expect Zellers' playing time to decrease upon Varejao's return.
