Andy sidelined

cavs blog by Bob Finnan

Of course, the Cavs aren't saying, but the sprained left ankle suffered by valuable forward/center Anderson Varejao appears to be serious.

If he's forced to miss a few games, that will affect the Cavs' big-man rotation in a big way. He rolled his ankle with 3:12 left in the third quarter of Sunday's win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Andy had been leading all NBA reserves in rebounds with 8.7 per game. In his last six games, he was averaging 9.5 rebounds. He had just four on Sunday before limping off the court.

One option could be to give veteran Donyell Marshall some playing time. He's back to full health, and has been active in each of the last two games.
