Cavs' Varejao helped off court

Cleveland, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Cleveland Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao left Tuesday's 125-104 win against Minnesota with left foot and ankle injury.

Varejao collapsed under the basket going for a rebound and then had to be helped off the court. He was unable to put any weight on the leg. The injury occurred with 7:24 left in the third quarter.

Varejao is expected to undergo an MRI on his foot Wednesday to determine the severity of the injury.

Cavaliers forward Kevin Love, facing his former team for the first time since being traded from the Timberwolves in the offseason, also exited the contest earlier in the third due to a thumb injury, but returned later in the period.

"It scared me initially. I had jammed it pretty bad during the Brooklyn game and in practice put it in tape the next day, so I was fortunate that I was able to, I guess, get shots up and some practice time with the tape on," Love said. "We came back here and it seems to be just a mild, little thing. I shook it off and went back in there and played."
