  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Making progress but still out

    Head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Monday that Windler, who had been rehabbing a right ankle sprain, is making progress while he now rehabs a hamstring injury and is expected to play at some point this season, Sam Amico of HoopsWire.com reports.

    Windler has yet to suit up this season while recovering from the ankle injury he sustained during a practice in training camp. Though Amico notes Windler has healed up from the ankle sprain, the 26-year-old is still without a timeline to make his season debut while he works through the hamstring injury he picked up while rehabbing the ankle issue. Windler has struggled to stay healthy since entering the NBA as a first-round pick in 2019 and has appeared in only 81 games through his first four years in the league. Given his injury history, the Cavaliers have little incentive to rush Windler back, considering he's not a lock to be included in the rotation even when healthy. While Bickerstaff expressed optimism about him playing at some point this season, Windler's debut presumably won't come anytime soon and will likely be signaled by a return to 5-on-5 practice and/or an assignment to the G League's Cleveland Charge.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Out another 4-to-6 weeks

    The Cavaliers announced Wednesday that Windler (ankle) is slated to miss approximately 4-to-6 more weeks after receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection.

    Windler hasn't yet taken the court this season and is slated to miss at least another month due to his sprained right ankle. The 26-year-old will be in a walking cast before beginning a rehab program, but a better idea of his status is unlikely to come into focus until he resumes basketball activities. He's unlikely to return to game action until at least late December or early January.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: May be out another month-plus

    Windler (ankle) will get a Platelet-Rich Plasma injection in his right ankle and undergo a new treatment plan that could keep him sidelined for at least another month, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.

    Windler's ankle still has lingering ligament damage, and a second opinion on the issue suggested a PRP injection and rehab program that will keep him in a boot for at least three weeks, with the aim of avoiding surgery. Fedor suggests he could be out another month because of the issue, though he also noted that each player heals at his own pace. Windler has been plagued by injuries early in his career, playing no more than 50 games over his first two seasons, and it appears he's headed for another lengthy stay on the shelf.
