 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Cleveland Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao is missing his second straight game because of a sore back.
Varejao is sitting out Wednesday when the Cavaliers take on Detroit - one night after he missed a home win against Sacramento. He also missed time earlier this month because of a bruised left knee.
The 6-foot-11 Varejao is averaging 8.8 points per game this season.
Cleveland is also without Carrick Felix, who has a stress fracture in his left knee. Detroit is missing Josh Harrellson, sidelined by a left knee injury.
