G - CLE - OUT
Dylan Windler registered 15 points (5-6 FG, 5-5 3PT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block, and one turnover in Tuesday night's win versus the Hawks.
Windler had a superb shooting performance, and the Cavaliers really needed it to end their 10-game skid. However, he remains off the fantasy radar until he can consistently record solid offensive nights like this one.
Cavaliers forward Dylan Windler expected to miss at least one week with a fractured hand.
Windler played nine minutes in Wednesday's win over the Hornets before exiting with the injury. In the meantime fantasy players should expect Damyean Dotson to take over Windler's role.
Cavaliers' guard Dylan Windler exited Wednesday's game with a wrist injury and will not return.
Windler collided with Gordon Hayward while going up for a layup and landed on his wrist. He left the game and wasn't able to shoot the free throws which by NBA rule, disqualifies him from returning to the game. This was Windler's first game since January of 2020 so Cavalier fans are hoping it isn't serious.
Cleveland Cavaliers G Dylan Windler told reporters that he is “probably 70 to 80 percent of the way there” in terms of returning to NBA game action.
The former Belmont guard was the No. 26 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. Since playing four years in college and never missing a single game, it’s been quite the opposite for Windler in the NBA. He has yet to play a game for the Cavs after suffering a stress reaction in his lower leg before training camp even started. He had surgery in January ahead of the NBA shutdown and has continued his rehab. Windler said during an interview, “It’s been a little over three months right now and I think the doc’s saying maybe a month or a month and a half before I’m able to play live basketball again.” Hopefully he’ll be able to get onto the court soon for a Cleveland team in desperate need of some highly-efficient three point shooting.
Dylan Windler (lower leg) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.
Windler did not play a single game this season due to a left tibial stress reaction and has been ruled out for the year. He will go through rehabilitation and treatment on his leg and should return by training camp. The 23-year old will try to break into the Cavaliers rotation next season.
