Cleveland Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks after having knee surgery on Thursday.

Varejao underwent a procedure at the Cleveland Clinic to repair a small split in his vastus medialis muscle that was part of the right knee contusion he suffered Dec. 18 in a game against Toronto.

The 6-foot-11 Varejao has averaged 14.1 points and 14.4 rebounds in 25 games this season.
