Report: Anderson Varejao out for the season

Cleveland Cavalier Anderson Varejao reportedly underwent an MRI on his left foot Wednesday after landing awkwardly in last night's win over Minnesota and according to

he suffered a torn Achilles tendon.

The report states the long-term injury will cause the center to miss the rest of the season.

This would be a tough loss for the Cavs. Varejao just signed an extension with the team in October.

The loss of Varejao will move Tristan Thompson into the starting lineup for Cleveland.
