Caris LeVert suffers gruesome leg injury
Caris LeVert had to be taken off the court in a stretcher on Monday night after suffering a gruesome leg injury.
The Brooklyn Nets guard landed awkwardly on his right leg and was in clear pain immediately. You can see the video at this link, but beware it’s nasty.
The injury occurred right before halftime of Brooklyn’s game at Minnesota. LeVert was taken away on a stretcher and had a towel covering his face.

LeVert was having a breakout season for Brooklyn. The 24-year-old entered the game averaging 19 points per game on 47.7 percent shooting but now will probably be out for the season.
