BROOKLYN'S Caris LeVert suffered a horrific leg injury after landing awkwardly in an National Basketball Association game this morning. Despite Monday night's gruesome injury, he won't need surgery and is expected back this season.

At halftime, the Nets had tears in their eyes fearing the worst for their rising star, Caris LeVert, after he was carried out on a stretcher to a local Minnesota hospital.

But less than 24 hours later he's been diagnosed with a dislocated right foot and there's talk of him returning to the court later this year.

"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.
