LeVert was diagnosed with a dislocated right foot and is expected to make a return this season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
This is great news for LeVert considering how gruesome the injury initially looked, and the lack of surgery will make for a much faster rehab process for the shooting guard. It's still an unfortunate circumstance for LeVert, who was in the midst of having a breakout season with the Nets. The team will likely have an update on his timetable shortly, but for now, Allen Crabbe and DeMarre Carroll should both be in line for extended roles on the wing in LeVert's absence.
LeVert was forced to leave the court in a wheelchair after suffering what appears to be a significant ankle injury Monday against Minnesota, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
LeVert went down in a heap and was unable to make it off the court without assistance. It's safe to assume he won't return to Monday's contest, and his availability for the remainder of the season is certainly a concern at this point. The team hasn't released any details regarding the injury just yet, but expect more information to surface after further evaluation.
LeVert exited midway through the third quarter of Saturday's 116-100 loss to the Warriors with a knee injury and didn't return, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports. "It feels OK," LeVert said of his knee after the game. "I just fell on it a little bit, but I'll be fine for the next game."
LeVert had been playing through a head cold coming into the day and finished with just four points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and two rebounds across 21 minutes before departing. It sounds like LeVert's removal was mostly precautionary, as coach Kenny Atkinson confirmed after the contest that the young guard should be good to go for Monday's game in Minnesota. LeVert's early departure Saturday opened up more run off the bench for Shabazz Napier, who tallied 14 points (4-7 FG, 6-9 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes.
LeVert had 26 points (10-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 104-82 victory over the Suns.
LeVert was dominant again Tuesday, finishing with a game-high 26 points in the 22 point victory. LeVert was talked about during the pre-season as a potential breakout candidate and thus far, he has exceeded all expectations. He has quickly become the primary focus on the offensive end whilst demonstrating the ability to contribute in multiple areas on any given night. The Nets will travel to Denver on Friday, providing LeVert with another opportunity to prove his wares against a more highly fancied opponent.
