Cleveland Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao is out for the season after recently developing a blood clot, the team announced Monday. Varejao was admitted to the Cleveland Clinic on Thursday with a small right lower lung pulmonary embolism. He is expected to fully recover, but he is being treated with blood thinners. He will continue the treatment and be examined at the hospital for several days and stay on blood thinning medication for about three months. "Clearly our players' health is our top concern and we are disappointed for Anderson, and his family," Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant said in a statement. "We know what a competitor he is and how much he wants to be on the court helping his teammates. In the meantime, he has our full support and we look forward to welcoming him back as he recovers." Varejao averaged 14.1 points and 14.4 rebounds a game before having knee surgery a couple weeks ago. He was expected to be out six to eight weeks.
