CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao will need at least one month to recover from his broken wrist.
Varejao sustained a non-displaced fracture to his right wrist on Feb. 10 against Milwaukee. Cavs coach Byron Scott said Varejao will need 4-to-6 weeks to recover, and at this point, surgery is not necessary. The 6-foot-11 Varejao was playing at an All-Star level for the Cavs, who host Miami on Friday.
Varejao underwent more tests earlier this week and the Cavs announced their timetable for his return Thursday.
Semih Erden started for Varejao on Wednesday and scored a career-high 18 points in a win over Indiana.
It's the second straight season Varejao has sustained a significant injury. He played only 31 games in 2011 before tearing a foot ligament in practice.
