10:39 AM ET 09.15 | I hear that Anderson Varejao was been cleared for all basketball activities when the Cavs open training camp in a few weeks. Varejao missed 57 games last season because of a leg injury followed by blood clots. In the last three seasons, he has played only 81 games -- and missed 149 -- due to various injuries. So it's hard to count on him.

You better get back, Andy. If Bynum is healthy he could take your job.

Maybe not! They'll both be out before you know it.

No he returns to his more natural position of forward which he played when Z was there.

QUOTE(#6):

Makes sense but they have young Tristan Thompson there as well as their new rook.If Bynum is healthy the best play may be to trade Andy while he is still good.

Aye Aye, Em. Trading Sideshow would show the real level of loyalty present in pro sports, though; would they burn Gilbert's jersey if he trades Andy?

Good for him. Now, he should either change his hairstyle or get rid of the headband. He looks Wonder Woman-ish with that tiara...

now that the Cavs have some depth in the front court and Andy can go back to playing 25-30 minutes and his more natural position of PF he should be able to stay a lot more healthy

banging down low against the biggest guys in the league for 35 minutes a night with the way he plays was just not going to work ---

playing off the bench against 2nd units for 25-30 a night against PFs Varejao will absolutely dominate

Kyrie, Bynum, Varejo might be the "best injured team" in the league. I'll be shocked if they play 50 games COMBINED between them.

Mr Glass, they have a lot of them in Cleveland.
