Dylan Windler (leg) says he’s ‘70 to 80 percent’ in regards to his rehab
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.
