Windler, 24, has been sidelined for the majority of his career in the league.
As a matter of fact, the No. 26 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft missed the entire 2019-20 season due to injury.
The forward is collecting 5.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game this season. He’s played in 31 games this year.
However, he started dealing with knee trouble earlier this season.
The Cavs, who are fighting for a chance to make the 2021 playoffs, hold a 20-37 record this season. They take on the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.
