1. A user equipment (UE) for wireless communication, comprising:
a memory; and
one or more processors operatively coupled to the memory, the memory and the one or more processors configured to:
determine that a secondary cell (SCell) is to be activated for the UE or switched from a dormant state to an active state, wherein the SCell is in a discontinuous reception (DRX) group; and
set a DRX state for the SCell based at least in part on determining a DRX state of other SCells in the DRX group or determining that there are no existing SCells in the DRX group.
