Windler (lower leg) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
The Cavaliers will have Windler take a break from basketball activities as he continues to deal with a left lower leg stress reaction. He began experiencing symptoms related to the injury following a series of Cavs workouts and a G League stint.
Windler (lower leg) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against San Antonio.
Windler has yet to play this season due to a leg injury. His next opportunity to take the court will come Saturday in Milwaukee.
Windler (lower leg) is out for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.
Windler has yet to appear in an NBA game, though he's seen some run in the G League. His next opportunity to see NBA action arrives Thursday against the Spurs.
Windler (lower leg) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Celtics.
After appearing in two games for the G League's Canton Charge last week, Windler looks to have reached the finish line in his recovery from a tibial stress reaction in his left leg, an injury he suffered in training camp. The Cavaliers still aren't ready to clear him for game action at the NBA level, however, so Windler may need to show more improvement with his conditioning before potentially making his Cleveland debut as soon as Wednesday versus the Rockets.
Windler (lower leg) played 18 minutes off the bench for the G League's Canton Charge in a 116-109 win over the Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Thursday. He finished with eight points (3-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and four rebounds.
The appearance marked Windler's first game action of any kind since the Las Vegas Summer League, as the left tibial stress reaction he suffered in September prevented him from participating in the preseason along with the Cavaliers' first 20 regular-season contests. The rookie first-round pick could make another appearance or two with Canton in order to regain conditioning before the Cavaliers clear him to make his NBA debut. Cleveland is currently listing Windler as out for Friday's game against the Magic.
Windler (lower leg) was assigned to the G League's Canton Charge on Wednesday, Sam Amico of SI.com reports.
According to Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer, Windler will practice with the Charge on Wednesday and, if all goes well, play in Thursday's game against Rio Grande Valley. Seeing as Windler has been sidelined all season with a left tibial stress reaction, he's expected to stick with Canton for a few extra days before being cleared to make his NBA debut.
Windler (lower leg) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Detroit, Sam Amico of SI.com reports.
Windler felt strong following Monday's practice, but the rookie forward has not yet been cleared to make his NBA debut. If he practices without issue again Tuesday, there's a good chance he could be given the green light for Friday's matchup against the Magic.
Coach John Beilein said Windler (lower leg) "responded well" after taking part in Monday's practice, though the rookie remains without an official timeline to make his NBA debut, Spencer Davies of BasketballInsiders.com reports.
Though he was unwilling to identify a target date for the Windler to play, Beilein suggested that Tuesday would be "the key" in order to assess how well the forward has responded to two intense practice sessions. Windler seems unlikely to get the green light to play Tuesday against the Pistons, but a return for Friday's game against the Magic could be in the cards if he's feeling healthy. Windler will likely handle a small role initially for the Cavaliers, though he could push Cedi Osman and Kevin Porter for steady minutes at small forward once he's gotten a few games under his belt.
Windler (lower leg) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Nets.
Windler has been sidelined since the preseason with a stress reaction in his lower left leg and remains without a clear timeline for making his NBA debut. Once healthy, the rookie first-round pick could vie for minutes right away at small forward, a position in which the Cavaliers have struggled to generate production from the likes of Cedi Osman, Kevin Porter Jr. and Alfonzo McKinnie this season.
Windler (lower leg) was ruled out for Thursday's game against the Heat.
Windler has yet to see the court this season due to a left tibial stress reaction. The 23-year-old originally received a 4-to-6 week recovery timeline in late September, but he apparently still needs some additional time.
Windler will not be available for the Cavaliers' upcoming three-game road trip, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.
A left tibial stress reaction will continue to keep the rookie on the sidelines. His original timetable of four-to-six weeks, given in late September, suggests he could return this month.
Windler (lower leg) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Magic.
The rookie missed the entire preseason after he was diagnosed in late September with a left tibial stress reaction, so his absence for the regular-season opener comes as little surprise. At the time Windler suffered the injury, the Cavaliers indicated he was facing a 4-to-6-week recovery timeline, so it seems unlikely that the 23-year-old will be ready to make his NBA debut until around mid-November.
Windler suffered a left tibial stress reaction during a recent workout and will be sidelined four-to-six weeks.
The rookie is unlikely to make his debut during the first game of the regular season, but he should be back on the court by November. He'll be fighting for wing minutes along with Cedi Osman and Kevin Porter.
Windler totaled 15 points (6-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds and three assists over 29 minutes in the Cavaliers' 85-75 loss to the Timberwolves in the Las Vegas Summer League on Friday.
Windler, the No. 26 overall pick in this year's draft out of Belmont, had a productive game across the stat sheet. A natural scorer while in college, Windler averaged 10.3 points in three games in the Salt Lake City Summer League prior to Friday's contest in Las Vegas.
Windler will play for the Cavaliers during summer league, Sam Amico of AmicoHoops.net reports.
As expected, the late-first-round pick will show off his talents in Vegas while getting familiar with some teammates and coaches. He figures to be a backup wing once the regular season rolls around.
