GRUESOME INJURY: Brooklyn Nets Star Caris LeVert Breaks Leg After Landing Awkwardly…VIDEO
It looks like LeVert somehow escaped serious injury. He reportedly dislocated his foot. No break, which means he will return this season!
It seems like this happens at least once a year in the NBA. Last year we saw Gordon Hayward miss an entire season after snapping his leg on the court, and now Brooklyn Nets star Caris LeVert will likely miss the rest of the season with a very similar injury.
The star forward was trying to prevent Josh Okogie from making an easy scoring attempt, but when he landed on the court, his ankle snapped.
Trainers surrounded him and stabilized his leg before placing him on a stretcher. We still don’t know how severe the break is, but it looked pretty bad. He’ll likely miss the rest of the season, which is a shame because he was having a good one.
Several NBA stars reacted on Twitter…
I HATE injuries! Prayers up for Caris LeVert!

It’s a shame. There’s really nothing you can do to prevent these injuries. When you’re running full speed, flying in the air…accidents are going to happen.
