Nets' LeVert Has Dislocated Foot, Expected To Return This Season

Nets' Caris LeVert suffers devastating leg injury

Players in tears over young NBA star's sickening injury

LeVert was trying to defend Minnesota guard Josh Okogie on a transition play in the low post when he jumped and his leg appeared to give out.

Just before halftime of the game between the Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves, LeVert landed awkwardly on his right leg. He was taken off the court on a stretcher.

Though the Brooklyn Nets are not always in the national NBA spotlight, Caris LeVert has been enjoying the 2018-19 season.

Third, former New England players got revenge against Belichick and the Patriots - and chirped about it afterward. This one feels like an elimination game, too. "Any time you lose, you have to learn from it", he told WEEI.

Considering how bad the injury looked in real-time, the fact that LeVert won't need surgery, and is expected to return this season is extremely encouraging. The 24-year-old is 6'10 so that's a lot of person coming down on it.

Team orthopedist Martin O'Malley determined LeVert incurred only "moderate" ligament damage in the second quarter of Monday's game against the Timberwolves. "Caris will begin a period of rehabilitation with the Nets' performance staff, following which he is expected to return to full strength and resume all basketball activities without any limitations this season". Further updates will be issued as available. He had 10 points, five rebounds and four assists Monday. The University of MI alum has been having a great season so far and has been averaging 19 points, 3.7 assists and 4.2 rebounds in the 13 games he's played for the Nets in 2018.
