What could Cavaliers star Collin Sexton's recovery window look like? An orthopedic expert weighs in
Right Down Euclid reports on Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Collin Sexton's torn meniscus in his left knee and HSS sports medicine surgeon Struan H. Coleman, MD, PhD, who did not treat Sexton, weighs in on a potential recovery window for the injury.
Dr. Coleman explained, “It's likely that he has a small bone bruise and a small meniscus tear, and they're seeing if they can get him back without surgery. That's a good sign that he was on the court shooting baskets. That suggests to me that they're going to try to treat this non-operatively or they're testing him to see if they can. So he might be back in about four weeks.”
He continued, “We obviously don't have a crystal ball, but here's what I would say about that medical team, which I know. They're a great team, and they are not going to do anything to jeopardize his ability to play in the short term or the long term. So, they're going to do the right thing for him so that it gets him back, in the short term, if possible, and certainly protect his knee and allow him to have his full career in the long term.”
