In the finals seconds of the first half, LeVert jumped up for a block but landed awkwardly and fell to the floor in pain.

After being attended to for a few minutes, LeVert was taken off the court.

LeVert was taken immediately to a local hospital for further evaluation.

LeVert entered the game as the Nets' leading scorer with 19 points per game.

Thousand Oaks bar shooting: 13 dead including gunman and sheriff's deputy
Multiple people have been injured in a shooting at a bar in southern California, authorities said. Dean said around 10 other people were wounded in the shooting. "It's a horrific scene in there".

"Fortunately, tests performed this morning revealed that there are no fractures and only moderate ligament damage", O'Malley said.

LeVert was enjoying a breakout year for the Nets in his third season. He is averaging 18.4 points and is the only player in the league this season to convert multiple go-ahead baskets with less than 10 seconds remaining in regulation or overtime. LeVert underwent three foot surgeries while at the University of MI and saw both his junior and senior seasons cut short by injury after making the All-Big 10 Second Team as a sophomore. The looks on the faces of his teammates gave the appearance they knew LeVert suffered a serious injury. The 24-year-old is 6'10 so that's a lot of person coming down on it. "We didn't talk even when we came in at halftime".

This is encouraging news for the Nets and many fans who were anxious to see the young wing flourish.

With the worst outcome averted for Caris LeVert, that fact alone should give the Brooklyn Nets a boost.
