Brooklyn Nets' Rising Star Caris LeVert Suffers Gruesome Leg Injury

Video Caris Le Vert Stretchered Off After Gruesome Leg Injury

Nets guard Caris LeVert sustained what appeared to be a severe right leg injury during the second quarter of Brooklyn's game against Minnesota on Monday night and was taken to a hospital. But an unfortunate injury to a rising player in this league on a franchise finally gaining excitement after years in purgatory is impossible to not start with. Afterward, LeVert was diagnosed with a subtalar dislocation of the right foot. LeVert was rushed to a local hospital while his teammates finished the game, many in tears and several fully expecting him to miss the rest of the season. "Caris will begin a period of rehabilitation with the Nets' performance staff, following which he is expected to return to full strength and resume all basketball activities without any limitations this summer".

The arena was silent as medics attended to LeVert, who had 10 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds when he exited the game. 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.
