Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton is set to be sidelined for the whole 2021-2022 season. 

Reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic, the explosive cager has undergone surgery to fix his left meniscus tear — a season-ending process. 

Sexton had a painful knee collision with teammate Jarrett Allen in the Cavaliers’ victory against the New York Knicks earlier this month. He was then ruled out indefinitely and was replaced by Ricky Rubio in the starting lineup. 

Before the injury, Sexton was averaging 16.0 points and 3.3 boards in 11 games. He is set to become a restricted free agent next offseason after a failed new contract negotiation with the Cavs.
