Nets say LeVert could return from foot injury this season

Caris-LeVert-USNews-111218-ftr-getty

A replay of the fall shows LeVert landing and bending his lower leg, but the extent of his injury has yet to be discerned.

The injury occurred just before halftime when LeVert attempted to block Minnesota guard Josh Okogie's shot as he drove to the basket. He was eventually taken off the court via stretcher to be checked out and got a round of supportive applause from the crowd.

"While the optics of this injury may have appeared to be more severe, surgery will not be required".

Caris LeVert received an outpouring of support from across the National Basketball Association following the gruesome injury he suffered on Monday.

His Nets teammates, as well as Timberwolves players, huddled in prayer as LeVert was stretchered from the court, with many in tears.

Dr. Dennis Cardone, a sports medicine orthopedic surgeon at NYU Langone Health, said this type of injury usually sidelines an elite athlete for 8-12 weeks.

The Brooklyn Nets said Tuesday their leading scorer suffered only a dislocation of his right foot and no fractures, and he could return this season.

LeVert was enjoying a breakout year for the Nets in his third season.

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.
