Caris LeVert of Nets Sustains Gruesome Leg Injury, Moving Some to Tears

“There were really just no words,” Nets forward Joe Harris said after the game, according to The Associated Press. “We didn’t talk even when we came in at halftime. There’s nothing really to be said. You could just feel it, the emotions from everybody. Guys were crying coming in, it was really that horrific just to see.”

The injury conjured visions of the ghastly leg injuries sustained by Gordon Hayward of the Boston Celtics and Isaiah Canaan of the Phoenix Suns last season, and Paul George, then with the Indiana Pacers, during a U.S.A. Basketball scrimmage in 2014.

N.B.A. players quickly responded to LeVert’s injury with an outpouring of support on social media, including Jeremy Lin, who sustained a season-ending injury with the Nets on opening night last season.
