Caris LeVert gets excellent news after gruesome looking injury

Caris LeVert

Brooklyn Nets guard Caris LeVert suffered what looked like an incredibly gruesome leg injury during Monday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, but he received some great news after undergoing tests.

There was speculation that LeVert may have suffered a fracture like the one Gordon Hayward sustained at the start of last season, but the 24-year-old has been diagnosed with a dislocated right foot. He has some ligament damage, but the outcome could not have been much better given how bad the injury looked. What’s even more encouraging is that LeVert is expected to play again this season.

You could tell by the outpouring of support LeVert received from the NBA community that the injury news was expected to be far worse. The fact that he was able to avoid any fractures or broken bones was very fortunate.

LeVert is having a breakout season for Brooklyn, as he entered Monday’s game averaging 19 points per game on 47.7 percent shooting. It’s unclear exactly how much time he will miss.
