LeVert hit right leg after colliding with Jeff Teague in an attempt to block persecution. He sat down and looked at his leg before lying on the court and putting his hands on his forehead with obvious pain.
The Arena was silent while doctors treated Leverta, who had 10 points, five assists and four attacks when he left the game. His teammates alluded to Levertus, taking him to the locker.
Network coach Kenney Atkinson, who spoke after the match, said Levert is "the heart and soul of our program … it's a blow to the networks."
"He had a fantastic start to the season," said Atkinson. & # 39; & # 39; & # 39; Apparently it's taken a big leap. I only know that if someone returns from it, person, character, person, the player will return from it again. But this is a hard and difficult blow to the networks. Our only thoughts are with him. Nothing else is important. The game is not important tonight. & # 39; & # 39;
League players also expressed their condolences.
Petition to @CarisLeVert!!! I'm sure he's playing this season and I'm in love with that! Curiosity to hurt her

LeVert is not a stranger to health problems: his first and final year in Michigan ended in premature injuries.
"There was really no word," said Joe Harris after the game. "We do not talk even when we start half an hour. There was nothing to say." The boys shouted.It was really so terrible, just to see. & # 39; & # 39;
LeVert has become one of the NBA's newest stars this season, which is the cornerstone of network renewal. He recorded on Monday a game with an average of 19 points, 3.7 passes and 4 rebounds for each game.
"He has done everything he can to make himself successful, good and healthy, and then you just have an accident," Harris said. & # 39; & # 39; That is more difficult for us all. & # 39; & # 39;
