Anderson Varejao will undergo surgery on Jan. 10 at the Cleveland Clinic and is expected to be out for six to eight weeks.

Varejao was injured during the Cavaliers game against the Toronto Raptors on Dec. 8.

Diagnosis was a right knee contusion, specifically to the vastus medialis which connects to the medial (inner) border of the patella. As Varejao's treatment and recovery process continued, an MRI revealed the contused area included a small longitudinal split in the vastus medialis.
