Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus and will be out for the remainder of the season, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Friday.
Sexton, 22, suffered the left knee injury in Cleveland’s Nov. 7 win over the New York Knicks. The Cavs are 2-4 in his absence.
Selected in the first round of the 2018 draft, Sexton was second on the team to score 16.0 points and also averaged 3.3 rebounds in 28.7 minutes per game. He averaged 24.3 points in 60 games for Cleveland last season.
Sexton appeared in line to get a contract extension before the season, but the parties never reached an agreement before the deadline and he will become a restricted free agent next summer.
