Caris LeVert suffered an awful ankle injury while attempting a block during the Brooklyn Nets’ game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night. The Target Center fell silent as LeVert was carried off the floor on a stretcher.

The injury is extremely tough to watch, calling to mind Gordon Hayward’s season-ending leg injury in the Celtics’ season opener last year. If you want to see it, click this link.

Players were visibly shaken as LeVert laid on the floor.

Teammate Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was reportedly brought to tears at the sight of the injury.

LeVert had 10 points, five rebounds and four assists at the time of the injury, which happened late in the second quarter.

LeVert was in the midst of a breakout campaign for the Nets in his third NBA season. He entered the game averaging 19 points per game, emerging as Brooklyn’s go-to player and earning some early All-Star buzz.

LeVert was taken out of Saturday’s game vs. the Warriors after suffering a second half knee injury, but returned to the lineup against the Wolves. The Nets were off to a 6’7 start, which was the eighth best record in the Eastern Conference.

This is a devastating injury for LeVert and the Nets. Get well soon, Caris.
