Indiana Pacers’ Caris LeVert was a very important piece in the trade that sent James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets.
During the process of finalizing the trade, the 26 year old wing underwent a physical that revealed a small mass on his left kidney.
The team released an official statement on the situation:
“Caris LeVert will be out indefinitely after an MRI revealed a small mass on his left kidney during a physical prior to finalizing the four-team trade with Brooklyn, Houston, and Cleveland. Levert will undergo further medical tests and more details will follow as needed.”
LeVert, through the organization, released his own statement:
“On behalf of my family and myself, we want to thank the Indiana Pacers for their support and guidance. We are grateful for their extreme thoroughness during the physical process and I am looking forward to joining the team and being part of this great organization as soon as possible.”
We send prayers to LeVert, his family and wish him a speedy recovery.
