On Monday night, the NBA world looked on in horror
According to Shams Charania, LeVert has actually avoided a terrible injury and will not even require surgery to repair his ankle and foot. Charania suggests that there is a real chance that LeVert plays again this season, a huge blessing for the Nets organization.
No surgery for LeVert and he is expected to make a return this season. LeVert flew home with the Nets from Minneapolis last night, went to hospital in New York and ran tests that showed no fractures and moderate ligament damage. https://t.co/1XdHuAxZN8— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) November 13, 2018
The injury was a dislocated right foot but it could have been far worse for the 24-year-old. The Nets were at risk of losing a cornerstone of their franchise.

LeVert was in the midst of a breakout season, averaging a career high 18.4 points per game. While he will be sidelined for an extended period of time, LeVert was extremely lucky to have avoided a much worse injury.
