LeVert enjoyed a much better sophomore season as he averaged career highs in games played, minutes, points, assists, rebounds, steals and blocks. The former Michigan forward was also able to improve his 32.1 percent three-point shooting percentage in 2016-17 to 34.7 percent this season as well as attempted an overall 3.7 more field goals. LeVert is signed through next season where he will make about $1.7 million.
LeVert will start at shooting guard for Wednesday's season finale against the Celtics.
The Nets are set to be without the likes of DeMarre Carroll (hip), Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) and Joe Harris (ankle) on Wednesday, so despite being fresh off an injury, LeVert will jump into the starting five and is set for an expanded workload. Prior to missing the Nets' last game with an injury, LeVert had averaged 12.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.3 steals across six prior games, though a potential increase in usage could help him increase those numbers overall.
LeVert will be available for Wednesday's season finale against the Celtics, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
A sore foot kept LeVert out of Monday's win over Chicago, but he's been given the green light to return for Game 82 as the Nets close out the regular season. The 23-year-old is coming off of a 13-point, eight-assists performance Saturday in Chicago.
LeVert missed Monday's game against Chicago due to right foot soreness. But, the injury is apparently minor, as he's likely to take the floor Wednesday. Over his past six appearances, he's averaged 12.5 points, 5.8 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 28.2 minutes.
LeVert, who is dealing with lingering right foot tendinitis, was originally listed a doubtful for Monday's contest, so his absence was fully expected, and there doesn't appear to be any reason for the young shooting guard to return for Wednesday's season finale in Boston. With fellow wing Joe Harris listed as questionable with left ankle soreness, the Nets could be fairly light on guard depth Monday night, which could result in a heavy workload for Allen Crabbe.
