The Brooklyn Nets will be without Caris LeVert for several weeks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The 25-year-old guard has injured his thumb and the franchise fears that he has damaged a ligament.

The news will set the already short-staffed Nets back as LeVert had been averaging 16.8 points per game for the squad through the first ten games of the 2019-20 campaign.

LeVert has struggled with various injuries throughout his young career and another prolonged absence will throw a wrench in the plan for the former Michigan Wolverine to take his game to the next level in Year 4.

LeVert suffered a severe right leg injury in 2018-19 and was limited to just 40 games that season.
