Nets’ Caris LeVert will not require surgery after he appeared to have suffered a nasty injury to his right ankle on Monday night. According to the Nets, he suffered a dislocated right foot, but there are no fractures and he avoided major ligament damage.
Via Brooklyn Nets:
“Fortunately, tests performed this morning revealed that there are no fractures and only moderate ligament damage,” said Dr. O’Malley. “While the optics of this injury may have appeared to be more severe, surgery will not be required. 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 season.”
The fact that LeVert avoided major damage and is going to be able to return is insane. Hopefully when he gets back in the lineup he picks up where he left off at just over 18 points a game again.
