Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton will miss the remainder of the season after having surgery on his torn meniscus in his right knee, per multiple reports, including Shams Charania of The Athletic and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.Collin Sexton” width=”300″ height=”169″>
He will be a restricted free agent in July, so the news couldn’t have come at a worse time for Sexton or the Cavs.
Sexton, 22, is 6-foot-1 and his scoring average has decreased by eight points from last season, from 24.3 points to 16.0 points through his 11 appearances this year.
Sexton suffered the injury on Nov. 8, exiting the Cavs’ win over the Knicks in the second quarter. He underwent an MRI at the Cleveland Clinic the next day.
Until this point, he had missed just 12 games in his NBA career, all last season.
“It’s a massive loss,” Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com quoted a source as saying of Sexton at the time.
After a surprisingly quick start, the Cavs (9-8) have lost three straight amid a bevy of injuries.
