Cleveland Cavaliers Guard Done For Season

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton will be out for the remainder of the season. The 22-year-old had surgery to fix the torn meniscus in his left knee.

Sexton's injury was originally reported earlier this month, but the Cavaliers never announced an expected recovery timeline. Therefore, this is now an even bigger blow for Cleveland, as one of their key players is done for the year. Keep in mind, they currently have a 9-8 record and have been surprising a lot of people with their solid start. 

Sexton's 2021-22 campaign ends with him playing just 11 games. In them, he averaged 16.0 PPG, 3.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists. This was a big year for him, as his current contract expires this offseason and he was due for a notable raise as a restricted free agent. Now, this injury will surely impact negotiations and that's a real shame for him.

In 218 career games thus far, the 2018 8th overall pick has averaged 20.0 PPG, 3.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists.
