Varejao may be done for the year

Wow. According to the AP, Varejao has a torn ankle tendon and may be done for the year. Obviously, this is completely┬ádevastating. Not only was Andy the team’s best player and the only guy playing any defense, but he was the only truly attractive trade asset the Cavs had. Keeping Andy isn’t the worst thing in the world by any stretch of the imagination, but trading him for the right package could have really helped the team rebuild in earnest.

Well, not much more to say here. The worst team in basketball just lost its best player. Lord only knows how much lower the Cavs will sink now. Never say things can’t get worse, right?
