Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton is still recovering from surgery on his left knee to repair a torn meniscus, and while he maintains a positive frame of mind, he admits he still has to endure some ‘difficult’ aspects .
According to Sexton, being patient is the thing he struggles with the most. Being the competitive guy that he is, it’s no surprise he’s eager to get back on the court and join his Cavs teammates. However, Young Bull understands that he cannot rush his recovery and must put in the work daily to regain 1oo% of his health.
“I feel pretty good. Just pretty much day to day…stay consistent in the grind,” Sexton said, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. “It’s hard when you’re injured, that’s the patience part. Patience is hard because you always want to go out and back and just help the team any way you can.
“I’m excited to be here for All-Star week and to continue to be with the guys, it gives me energy.”
For what it’s worth, Collin Sexton didn’t provide an update on whether he’ll be able to return if the Cavs qualify for the playoffs. He’s already been ruled out for the season due to the extent of his injury, and on the face of it the 23-year-old is well aware that it’s highly unlikely he can return.
It’s understandable, however, why Sexton is impatient to play. The Cavs are thriving with a 35-23 record heading into the All0-Star break, putting them in the fourth seed with a legitimate chance of securing the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
For now, all he can really do is stay patient and fight his way back to full health. Surely he will be welcomed with open arms upon his return since the Cavs really like the energy and effort he brings both on offense and defense.
