Rookie Darnell Jackson made his first career start in place of Varejao, who is averaging 8.7 points and 7.1 rebounds and had played in all 76 games this season.

The Cavs had no information on when the perpetually hustling Varejao hurt his wrist.

He scored seven points with four rebounds in Cleveland's loss at Orlando on Friday.
