Nets say LeVert could return from foot injury this season

Nets' LeVert sustains apparent severe right leg injury

However, the Nets expect that LeVert will be able to make a return to the court this season after tests on Tuesday morning revealed "no fractures and only moderate ligament damage", per team orthopedist Dr. Martin O'Malley.

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

Following Monday's game, Atkinson called LeVert "the heart and soul of our program" during a brief postgame media session.

The injury occurred just before halftime when LeVert attempted to block Minnesota guard Josh Okogie's shot as he drove to the basket.

LeVert, who battled foot injuries in college at MI before emerging as a first-round pick, had been the Nets' best player during their promising start. He had 10 points, five rebounds and four assists Monday.

The Brooklyn Nets and significant figures from the National Basketball Association community send their love to Caris LeVert who picked up a gruesome injury.

"The physical part, it was tough", said LeVert back in January of 2017 during his rookie season.

This is horrific. Brooklyn Nets star guard Caris LeVert landed wrong on his right leg during a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

"There was really just no words", teammate Joe Harris said after the game.

Through the first 14 games of the season, LeVert is averaging a career-high 18.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 29.7 minutes.
