Found December 14, 2011 on Cavaliers Locker:
The Cavaliers will be without 25-year old center Semih Erden for the next three weeks due to a thumb injury.  Erden played in 4 games (1 start) for the Cavaliers last year and he averaged 16.0 minutes, 3.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.  Erden played in 41 games (8 starts) as a rookie for the Cavaliers & Celtics last year and he averaged 14.5 minutes, 4.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game.  The Cavaliers are anxious to see when Erden can go this year, but they are going to take their time and let him heal.  Anderson Varejao and Ryan Hollins will handle center until Erden is ready to return to action.
