CLEVELAND -- Cavaliers centre Anderson Varejao will miss his fourth straight game because of a bruised right knee.

The Cavs said Varejao won't travel with them to Washington for Wednesday night's game against the Wizards. Varejao, who leads the NBA in rebounding, wasn't with the Cavs on Saturday when they snapped a six-game losing streak with a win in Milwaukee. He stayed in Cleveland to receive additional treatment, and the Cavs had hoped the extra rest would help him return this week.

Varejao injured his knee last week against Toronto. The 6-foot-11 Brazilian has been replaced in the starting lineup by rookie Tyler Zeller.

Cavs coach Byron Scott said the team would take a cautious approach with Varejao so he doesn't make his injury worse and miss more time.

Varejao averages 14.4 rebounds per game.
