CLEVELAND — Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Dylan Windler will miss the remainder of the season.

Windler has dealt with ongoing symptoms related to his left lower leg stress reaction he suffered early in training camp. He was unable to play this season due to his injury.

After several months of rehabilitation and treatment, it was determined that he will need surgery.

The 6-foot-8 Windler averaged 21.3 points and 10.8 rebounds as a senior at Belmont. The Cavs were enamored with his shooting ability after he made 43% of his 3-pointers last season.

His surgery is scheduled for Jan. 21.
