CLEVELAND — Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton‘s season is over after surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.
Sexton, 22, hurt his knee on Nov. 7 in a game against the New York Knicks. The Cavs didn’t provide an update until Friday, when they said Sexton underwent surgery on Wednesday in Atlanta.
Sexton was second on the team in scoring at 16.0 points and also averaged 3.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists in Cleveland’s first 11 games.
His loss is a significant blow for the Cavs, who got off to a strong start but have been ravaged recently by injuries. Rookie forward Evan Mobley is expected to miss a month with an elbow sprain.
The Cavs were missing six regulars on Thursday night in a loss to the Golden State Warriors.
