How Dylan Windler can bolster Cavs’ bench production next season

Last June, when the Cleveland Cavaliers selected Dylan Windler, a 6-foot-6 forward out of Belmont, with the 26th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, it looked as if the Cavaliers had added a solid piece to their young core.

However, Windler suffered a stress reaction in his left leg during workouts just before training camp, which delayed his debut with the Wine and Gold.

Windler appeared to be on track to return in early December, even playing in two games for the Canton Charge, Cleveland’s G-League affiliate. But Windler suffered a setback and ultimately was shut down for the season in mid-January, and even though the current season is suspended until further notice in order to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic, one would still assume Windler will be out until next season.
