Cleveland's roster has been ravaged by injuries this season.The Cavs entered Friday's game on a five-game losing streak, and at 5-22, they have the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference. A brutal schedule, combined with a young roster and slew of injuries have made this season especially challenging for Scott.
The Cavs have only been practicing once per week, and Scott was looking forward to next week when he'll be able to have three practices to work on things with his young squad.
"A treat," he said.
Rookie Tyler Zeller will make his second straight start for Varejao. The 7-foot Zeller scored a season-high 20 points and had three rebounds in 36 minutes against the Celtics.
