But LeVert returned to NY with the rest of the Nets late Monday, and he was evaluated Tuesday morning by Brooklyn's team orthopedist, Dr. Martin O'Malley, at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

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.

"Fortunately, tests performed this morning revealed that there are no fractures and only moderate ligament damage", said Dr. O'Malley.

The pain of every injury worsens when it comes at the most unfortunate time.

He was carried off the court and taken to a hospital for further evaluation.

Butler focused the camera on the charred frame of his former home, surrounded by ash and the blackened shell of a truck. Meanwhile, New Zealand's own Martin Henderson has thanked fans for all their concerned messages about his Malibu home.

It now looks like the Nets will be without MI product for the remainder of the season. Players on both teams were in shock and started praying for LeVert, who is only 24-years-old. He returned to NY with the team and was evaluated at the Hospital for Special Surgery. He had 10 points, five rebounds and four assists Monday.

"There was really just no words", Joe Harris said after the game.

The incident looked fairly similar to Gordon Hayward's last season and Paul George's in the summer of 2014. Guys were crying. It was really that horrific just to see.

LeVert entered the game as the Nets' leading scorer with 19 points per game.
