Windler (lower leg) estimated Friday that he's "probably 70 or 80 percent of the way there" in his recovery from the season-ending surgery he underwent in January, Steve Layman of NewsChannel 5 Nashville reports.

The 26th overall pick in the 2019 draft, Windler is essentially taking a redshirt during his rookie season after sustaining a stress fracture in his left leg during training camp and then aggravating the injury while rehabbing in December before being sent in for surgery. The 6-foot-6 forward is apparently coming along well three months after the procedure, but the Cavaliers aren't counting on him playing in 2019-20 even if the suspended season doesn't resume until June or July. He should be back to full strength for fall camp ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, however.
