Cavs shooting guard Dylan Windler out with wrist, finger injury

Cavaliers guard/forward Dylan Windler left Wednesday night’s home opener against the Charlotte Hornets in the third quarter with a left wrist injury and did not return to action.

X-rays taken at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse after the game were negative.

Further examination and an MRI administered today at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health revealed a fourth metacarpal fracture.

Windler will now undergo a period of treatment and rehabilitation and will be re-evaluated in one week. His status will be updated as appropriate.
