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.
