Collin Sexton RumorsAll NBA Players
They’ve been without Sexton and then lost Rubio to season-ending injuries. They have been without multiple starters at different points in the season because of injuries or health and safety protocols. But Wednesday’s 115-99 win over the Bucks was a statement on its own. It was the latest example of who the Cavs are as a team. It was also a measuring stick. With Antetokounmpo, Middleton and Holiday all in action, the Cavs proved they can not only beat the best, but they can be one of the best. “These are wins for us now,” coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. “And the statement is what our guys are capable of. This isn’t a commentary on opponents, right? It’s a commentary on our group of guys and the ability they have when they’re together. That’s the statement we’re making.”
Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Collin Sexton has dubbed his recovery from a torn meniscus “the get back” — and he vows to return even better than before.
“I’m doing good. I’m on schedule,” Sexton told cleveland.com during a Zoom interview to promote Mountain Dew’s “Rep the Land” ahead of NBA All-Star Weekend. “I’m feeling good mentally and physically. The mental part was going to be huge for me. At the end of the day, you continue to put in the work and continue to grind and put in the time and everything else is going to work out, so the mental part has been what I’ve been focused on.”
To keep his mind occupied, Sexton would read or write. Jotting down his emotions in a journal helped get through some of the dark days. “Not being able to play the game that I love, not being able to do certain things that I’m used to doing — going out there certain nights and shooting 500 shots or 1,000 shots every night and different things like that — it’s hard,” Sexton said. “You just don’t realize it until it’s taken away. That makes you want it that much more.
