Collin Sexton’s fourth NBA season is officially over after just 11 games.

The Cleveland Cavaliers guard underwent season-ending knee surgery on Wednesday in Atlanta, according to an announcement by the team Friday.

Sexton sustained a torn meniscus in his left knee against the New York Knicks on Nov. 7. He ended his season averaging 16 points — second on the team — as well as 3.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists.

The Cavaliers, who have been hit hard by injuries lately, have dropped three straight games following a 9-5 start to the campaign. They played their most recent game Thursday against the Golden State Warriors without promising rookie big man Evan Mobley (elbow), starting center Jarrett Allen (illness) and forwards Lauri Markkanen (health and safety protocols) and Cedi Osman (back), in addition to Sexton.

Cleveland selected Sexton with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft out of Alabama. The 22-year-old has career averages of 20 points, three rebounds and 3.3 assists in 218 games (208 starts).
