Nets' LeVert sustains apparent severe right leg injury

Nets' LeVert sustains apparent severe right leg injury

Caris LeVert suffered a serious right leg injury in the first half of Monday's game between the Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves. 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. We've got the scary video of the gruesome injury.

Many commentators and reporters said LeVert's injury was reminiscent of Gordan Hayward's shocking injury from last season.

O'Malley examined LeVert on Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery and the third-year swingman was diagnosed with a subtalar dislocation of the right foot. Brooklyn took a chance on him early when every other team had their reservations, and LeVert was finally becoming the player they had hoped he would become this season. He is averaging 18.4 points and is the only player in the league this season to convert multiple go-ahead baskets with less than 10 seconds remaining in regulation or overtime.

The optics O'Malley referred to were disturbing.

LeVert was racing back to try to block a shot and his leg bent awkwardly when he landed.

The stunned team went to the locker room for halftime, where Joe Harris said after the game the discussion - what there was - had nothing to do with the game.

Doctors continue to evaluate the 24-year-old guard's adversity. The Nets ended up acquiring with the 20th overall pick in a trade with the Indiana Pacers for Thaddeus Young. "Prayers up for Caris LeVert!".
