We bring you a bit of good news today in regards to an unfortunate injury of Brooklyn Nets guard Caris LeVert. As you probably already heard or even saw, LeVert had a really bad injury in their last game against the Minnesota Timberwolves which was later diagnosed as a subtalar dislocation of his right foot.
He had to be carried out by the medical staff and the initial diagnosis wasn’t promising. Today there was a really positive announcement by Nets team orthopedist Dr. Martin O’Malley.
“Fortunately, tests performed this morning revealed that there are no fractures and only moderate ligament damage. “While the optics of this injury may have appeared to be more severe, surgery will not be required.”
LeVert will not need a surgery and he is even expected to return this season.
He has been a great for the Nets this season who are doing better than anybody expected. In 14 games this season, LeVert has averaged a career-high 18.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.7 assis, s and 1.2 steals in 29.7 minutes per game.
We wish him a speedy recovery and hope he can come back even stronger.
