Windler practiced with the team on Sunday and Monday. He seemed to recover nicely after the back-to-back practices and got a workout in before Tuesday’s game against Detroit.
“He felt really good,” head coach John Beilein said. “He had no complications or no future soreness from yesterday’s workout. Today (Tuesday), we worked him out again. He shot again today and we’re just watching it every day. So it’s getting closer, it’s really getting closer now.”
The 6’7” rookie averaged 21.3 points and 10.8 rebounds per game last season at Belmont. The Cavs could use size and 3-point shooting ability off the bench.
