  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Ends up playing through sore knee

    Windler ended with six points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists across 19 minutes during Tuesday's 110-106 loss to the Grizzlies.

    There was some confusion regarding Windler's status heading into the game. He was initially cleared to play, then some Cavaliers reporters noted that an in-arena announcement indicated that Windler would not, in fact, be available. It turns out that the announcement was apparently incorrect, as Windler entered the game late in the first quarter and went on to see 19 minutes of action -- his most in any game since Nov. 12 against Detroit. When the Cavs are at full strength, Windler is often not in the rotation, but he could see some more looks with Cedi Osman (COVID-19 protocols) and Isaac Okoro (elbow) sidelined.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Available Tuesday

    Windler (knee) will be available Tuesday against Memphis.

    Windler went from questionable to probable earlier in the day, and he's since been cleared to make his return from soreness in his left knee. The third-year guard has been in and out of the rotation all season, but he did see 17 minutes of action against Washington on Thursday -- his most in any game since Nov. 18.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Scratched with sore knee

    Updating a previous report, Windler (knee) will not play Tuesday against Memphis, Evan Dammarell of Locked On Cavs reports.

    The Cavaliers listed Windler as available on their official injury report, but the guard has since been ruled out as he deals with soreness in his left knee. This is not the most encouraging sign for the third-year guard, who's missed a ton of time due to injuries -- including his entire rookie season -- since entering the league in 2019.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Upgraded to probable

    Windler (knee) is listed as probable for Tuesday's contest against the Grizzlies.

    Windler sat out Sunday's win over the Pacers, but it appears he will be available for the second half of the Cavaliers' back-to-back. However, the 2019 first-round pick doesn't warrant any fantasy consideration, as he's averaging just 2.5 points and 1.9 rebounds across 10.1 minutes per game.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Questionable Sunday

    Windler is questionable for Sunday's game against the Pacers due to left knee soreness.

    Windler continues to see spot minutes for the Cavaliers. If he sits out Sunday, it will mark his 15th absence of the year -- some due to DNP-CDs.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Available Thursday

    Windler (conditioning) is available for Thursday's game against the Wizards.

    Windler spent a week and a half in the league's health and safety protocols and was questionable for Thursday's matchup due to conditioning concerns. He'll be able to suit up against Washington but could have a minutes restriction.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Questionable Thursday

    Windler (return to competition reconditioning) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Wizards.

    Windler has missed the Cavs' last three games after he was placed in the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols on Dec. 19, and it's currently unclear if he'll be available for Thursday's game. The 25-year-old is averaging 2.6 points and 1.8 rebounds in 10.2 minutes per game this season, so his absence likely wouldn't affect the rotation much.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Enters league protocol

    Windler was placed in the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Sunday after testing positive for the virus, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Windler was one of five Cavaliers to test positive for the virus Sunday, prompting the NBA to postpone the team's game against Atlanta later in the day due to the Cavaliers' inability to have the league-mandated eight players active for the contest. The 25-year-old wing appeared in Saturday's 119-90 win over the Bucks, logging six minutes off the bench.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Suffers apparent head injury

    Windler suffered an apparent head injury in Saturday's win over the Bucks, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Coach J.B. Bickerstaff said after Saturday's matchup that Windler is still being evaluated after he took a hard fall against the Bucks. He recorded zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and a steal in seven minutes prior to his departure, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be available Sunday against Atlanta.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Posts double-double against Herd

    Windler compiled 26 points (9-20 FG, 7-16 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 37 minutes during Sunday's G League loss to the Herd.

    Windler was assigned to the Charge on Dec. 6, and he's played at least 24 minutes in each of his first three G League appearances of the season. He posted his first double-double of the year Sunday and is now averaging 16.7 points and 8.7 rebounds in 31.6 minutes per game with Cleveland.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Sent to G League

    Windler was assigned to the Cleveland Charge on Monday, Spencer Davies of BasketballNews.com reports.

    Windler is set to see extended minutes for the Charge on Monday and likely Tuesday as well. The 2019 first-round pick's progression continues to be hindered by injuries, so the G League is the best opportunity for him to see consistent playing time.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Suiting up Sunday

    Windler (back) is available for Sunday's game against the Jazz.

    Windler had been listed as questionable with a lower-back strain, but he'll be able to give it a go on the front end of a back-to-back set. With Cleveland at full health on the wing save for Collin Sexton (knee) -- who is out for the season -- Windler isn't a safe bet to be included in the rotation Sunday.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Questionable vs. Jazz

    Windler is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Jazz due to a lower back strain.

    Windler has seen just six minutes across the past two games. His potential absence shouldn't affect the rotation Sunday.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Scores nine off bench

    Windler finished Sunday's win over the Knicks with nine points (3-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist.

    The third-year guard is finally healthy after a string of injuries, and he's emerged as a consistent piece in the Cavs' rotation over the last few games. Windler has played 16, 21, 11 and now 17 minutes in his last four appearances, respectively, and he could be set for an expanded role if Collin Sexton (knee) misses any time going forward.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Season-best effort

    Windler contributed 13 points (4-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, a rebound and a steal in 21 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 107-104 win over the Trail Blazers.

    Part of just an eight man rotation for Cleveland Wednesday, Windler was effective in his time on the floor. The 2019 first-round pick emerged as a prolific scorer and sniper at Belmont, but hasn't recorded much NBA success in 35 appearances. Windler could conceivably carve out a consistent role for the Cavaliers second unit, but can remain off fantasy radars for now.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Fourth-year option exercised

    Windler had his fourth-year option picked up by the Cavaliers on Saturday, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Windler has struggled to stay healthy since being drafted 26th overall in 2019. The third-year forward has appeared in just 34 games, with averages of 4.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.0 assists. Considering the option is just over $4 million, the organization is seemingly comfortable giving Windler more chances to prove his worth in the NBA.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Cleared to play

    Windler (hip) is available to play Monday against the Nuggets, Evan Dammarell of Locked on Cavs reports.

    Windler went through shootaround earlier in the day and has since received the green light to take part in his first contest of the 2021 campaign. He averaged 5.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 31 games a season ago for the Cavs.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Participates in shootaround

    Windler (hip) participated in shootaround ahead of Monday's game against the Nuggets, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Windler hasn't yet made his season debut due to a right hip strain, but he participated in both parts of Monday's shootaround and remained on the court afterward to take some extra shots. Coach J.B. Bickerstaff is optimistic that both Windler and Darius Garland (ankle) will be able to play against Denver.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Could debut Monday

    The Cavaliers list Windler (hip) as questionable for Monday's game in Denver.

    A right hip strain has sidelined Windler for the Cavs' first three games, but the second-year forward looks like he might have a chance to make his 2021-22 debut Monday. Even if he's cleared to play in Denver, Windler likely won't be set for much more than a limited role off the bench. He averaged 5.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 0.8 three-pointers in 16.5 minutes per game over 31 appearances during an injury-shortened rookie campaign.

  • Cavaliers' Dylan Windler: Unavailable Saturday

    Windler (hip) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Atlanta, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Windler will miss a third consecutive game to open the regular season. Denzel Valentine could see a slight uptick in playing time in the 25-year-old's absence.
