Video Caris Le Vert Stretchered Off After Gruesome Leg Injury

Brooklyn Nets forward Caris LeVert has been among the best young players in the National Basketball Association thus far this season.

Seemingly everyone believed disaster struck during the Brooklyn Nets-Minnesota Timberwolves game Monday night when LeVert sustained what appeared to be a horrendous leg injury in the closing moments of the first half. He was eventually taken off the court via stretcher to be checked out and got a round of supportive applause from the crowd.

"While the optics of this injury may have appeared to be more severe, surgery will not be required".

The good news for LeVert is that he will not need to undergo surgery, and he is expected to return to on-court action this season.

LeVert scored 10 points before getting hurt.

"There was really just no words", teammate Joe Harris said after the game. Guys were crying. It was really that horrific just to see.

The incident looked fairly similar to Gordon Hayward's last season and Paul George's in the summer of 2014.

LeVert was enjoying a breakout season for the Nets, averaging career-highs in points (19), rebounds (4.2), steals (1.3) and minutes (30.8).

Many feared the budding star would be out of the season, but the Nets said Tuesday that LeVert has been diagnosed with subtalar dislocation of the right foot.
