Caris LeVert Suffers Gruesome Leg Injury During Brooklyn Nets Game

"Fortunately, tests performed this morning revealed that there are no fractures and only moderate ligament damage", Nets team orthopedist Dr. Martin O'Malley said in a statement.

The pain of every injury worsens when it comes at the most unfortunate time.

Brooklyn Nets star Caris LeVert went down with a sickening injury on Monday (local time) 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". He was eventually taken off the court via stretcher to be checked out and got a round of supportive applause from the crowd.

LeVert scored 10 points before getting hurt.

"There was really just no words", Joe Harris said after the game. However, that upward trajectory may stall after Cavis Levert suffered a horrific leg injury, similar to the type of injury Celtics forward Gordon Hayward suffered in last year's season opener.

Hopefully LeVert comes back even better next season for the Nets.

Caris LeVert entered Monday averaging 19.0 points, 3.7 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game while shooting 47.7 percent from the field, 32.8 percent from beyond the arc and 72.1 percent from the free-throw line.
