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.

The Nets said LeVert would undergo a full evaluation at the hospital and further updates would be issued as available.

Caris LeVert and the Nets got some much-needed good news Tuesday, when the emerging guard was diagnosed with just a dislocated right foot.

"Fortunately, tests performed this morning revealed that there are no fractures and only moderate ligament damage", Nets team orthopedist Dr. Martin O'Malley said in a statement, via the Nets.

Unfortunately, while the teaser did bring with it an actual launch period, it didn't include any footage from the final season. While we now know the much-anticipated new season will arrive next April, HBO has yet to disclose a specific date.

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

"While the optics of this injury may have appeared to be more severe, surgery will not be required". He's also averaging 4.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists. For many, the injury was reminiscent of Gordon Hayward's season ending injury last season. He missed part of his rookie National Basketball Association season while recovering from foot surgery.

Hopefully LeVert comes back even better next season for the Nets. The University of MI alum has been having a great season so far and has been averaging 19 points, 3.7 assists and 4.2 rebounds in the 13 games he's played for the Nets in 2018.
