CLEVELAND (WJW)– Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee during Sunday night’s game in New York, the team announced on Monday.

The 22-year-old left the game in the second quarter and did not return. An MRI at the Cleveland Clinic revealed the meniscus tear. The Cavs said Sexton will be evaluated further before his status is updated.

The 2018 first-round draft pick is averaging 16 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists a game this season.

The Cavs are 7-4 after their 126-109 win over the Knicks. Ricky Rubio and Evan Mobley lead the team with 37 and 26, points respectively.
