Caris LeVert sustains gruesome injury, National Basketball Association community reacts

Nets Le Vert sustains apparent severe right leg injury

However, the Nets expect that LeVert will be able to make a return to the court this season after tests on Tuesday morning revealed "no fractures and only moderate ligament damage", per team orthopedist Dr. Martin O'Malley.

Late in the first half of Monday night's game between the Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves, Caris LeVert was carted off the court after sustaining a gruesome - and likely very serious - injury to his right leg.

The injury occured seconds before half-time, with LeVert landing awkwardly after attempting a block on Timberwolves' rookie Josh Okogie.

The Nets said LeVert would undergo a full evaluation at the hospital and further updates would be issued as available.

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

LeVert missed the first 20 games of his rookie season while still recovering from foot surgery before making his delayed debut on December 7, 2016.

The Brooklyn Nets and significant figures from the National Basketball Association community send their love to Caris LeVert who picked up a gruesome injury.

You can see LeVert's leg snap as he lands.

"There was really just no words", Joe Harris said after the game. In 14 games (all starts), LeVert has averaged 18.4 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game this season.
