Caris LeVert of Brooklyn Nets suffers dislocated right foot

Video Caris Le Vert Stretchered Off After Gruesome Leg Injury

Caris LeVert suffered a gruesome leg injury on November 11 in the Brooklyn Nets' game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. 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 24-year-old is 6'10 so that's a lot of person coming down on it.

That's far better than what was feared when LeVert's leg appeared to bend in a gruesome manner after he leaped to block a shot in the final seconds of the first half of Monday night's game in Minnesota. He was eventually taken off the court via stretcher to be checked out and got a round of supportive applause from the crowd.

"Fortunately, tests performed this morning revealed that there are no fractures and only moderate ligament damage", O'Malley said in a release.

England could not have hoped for a better start, Brodie Retallick knocking on the kick-off and handing them early territory. England went to the corner and then with a driving maul that involved virtually the entire team, Hartley dotted down.

An early Most Improved Player candidate, LeVert has appeared in 14 games with the Nets this season with averages of 18.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.2 steals per contest. For his final foot surgery as a senior, LeVert picked O'Malley, who had repaired the ankles and feet of several stars National Basketball Association, including Kevin Durant and ex-Net Brook Lopez. LeVert was drafted in 2016 despite several injury issues in college.

LeVert entered the game as the Nets' leading scorer with 19 points per game.
