Varejao’s rehabilitation is ahead of schedule

Varejao is scheduled to rejoin full practice right after the new year and could be available for games shortly after that if he has no setbacks. The Cavs are planning to proceed cautiously to make sure he has enough strength in the shoulder to handle being in a game according to Brian Windhorst

The 6-foot-10 Varejao, who suffered the injury while playing for the Brazilian national team in August, has been ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation for weeks and has been involved in practices for about a month.
