CLEVELAND – Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton’s season is over after surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.
Sexton, 22, injured his knee on Nov. 7 in a game against the New York Knicks. The Cavs did not give an update until Friday when they said Sexton underwent surgery Wednesday in Atlanta.
Sexton was second on the team with 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 to the Cavs, who got off to a strong start but have recently been ravaged by injuries. Rookie forward Evan Mobley is expected to miss a month with an elbow sprain.
The Cavs were missing six regular players Thursday night in a loss to the Golden State Warriors.
