The Cleveland Cavaliers have recalled forward Jon Leuer from the Canton Charge, the team's NBA Development League team, Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant announced Thursday. Leuer has started six games Canton, averaging 20.3 points and 12.3 rebounds in 35.8 minutes per game. He has also played in five games this season for the Cavs, averaging 3.2 points and 2.0 rebounds in 14.4 minutes per game.
BEST OF MAXIM
He lost the mask. He joined the starting five. He put up a career-best 20 points, providing a flurry mid-range jump shots, right-handed hooks, and the occasional slash to the rim. Tyler Zeller, at least for one night, looked like an NBA-caliber center in what was just his 23rd professional contest — his first as a starter.
Most importantly: He was comfortable.
Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao will miss at least two more games with a bruised right knee.
Varejao has missed four games since hurting his knee on Dec. 18 against Toronto. The Cavs had hoped extra rest would get the NBA's leading rebounder back on the floor, but he's not ready to play. Varejao will sit out Friday's home game against Atlanta and will not travel with...
Cleveland Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao missed Wednesday night's game against the Boston Celtics because of a bruised right knee.
Varejao, the NBA's leading rebounder at 14.4 per game, was injured Tuesday night against Toronto when he landed awkwardly on his right leg and crumpled to the floor in pain after being fouled late in the first quarter. He limped to the locker...
CLEVELAND -- When you lose this much, there are no great stories to share. Everything pretty much stinks. Everything stops making sense. Everything you thought of yourself as a basketball player well, its easy to start questioning it.
Thats where the Cavaliers may be at this point. Maybe not, but theres certainly a chance. Thats just the way it goes in sports.
You can talk all...
The Cleveland Cavaliers, who have been dealing with numerous injuries this season, are glad to have first round pick Dion Waiters back from an ankle injury.
At one point, this game was actually close. the Cavs went into halftime with the slimmest of leads, 45-44. After halftime, the bottom fell out of defense. Indiana dropped 33 points in the third period and Cleveland could never recover. Roy Hibbert (18 points) and David West (15 points) killed the Cavs inside (Anderson Varejao was sorely missed). On the other end, Cleveland shot a dismal...
On July 23, 2004, the Cleveland Cavaliers acquired Drew Gooden and Anderson Varjeao in a trade with the Orlando Magic for Tony Battie and two second round draft picks.
For the next three seasons, Gooden and Varejao were teammates in Cleveland. Not only did they share time at the power forward position specifically, they also practiced against each other on a daily basis.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Roy Hibbert scored 18 points and Lance Stephenson added a season-high 16 to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 99-89 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, who lost their sixth straight game Friday night.
Hibbert didn't have to deal with injured Cavs center Anderson Varejao, the NBA's leading rebounder. Varejao missed his second game in a row with a bruised right...
The Cavaliers selected Tristan Thompson with the No. 4 pick of the 2011 NBA Draft instead of Jonas Valanciunas.
Kyrie Irving claims the Cleveland Cavaliers are more assertive versus the NBA's so-called elite teams than against lesser competition.
The Boston Celtics will need to start playing considerably better in order to be known as the former.
Boston looks to avoid a fourth straight loss while Cleveland tries to end a four-game skid Wednesday night at TD Garden.

Everyone loves to see a match-up for the ages and tonight is one of them as arguably two of the best point guards in the NBA go toe-to-toe for the first time in the 2012-13 season in a Wednesday night showdown.
After missing a month due a broken left index finger, Kyrie Irving is back. His return has been incredible. In the past five games...
This isnt getting any easier to type, but the Cavaliers just keep losing. Theyve now dropped five straight following Wednesdays loss in Boston -- and 10 of their last 11. Worse, Anderson Varejao is expected to miss Fridays home game against Indiana with a sore knee. Meanwhile, the gritty Pacers are finding a way to stay relevant without injured forward Danny Granger...
