Scott Agness: Nate Bjorkgren said they spent more time on the offense at today’s practice. Played 4-on-0, 3-on-0. And while Caris LeVert continues to up his participation level in drills, he has not yet gone through contact (no surprise). Today marks four weeks since surgery.
Brian Mahoney: Caris LeVert is traveling with the Pacers and working out some, according to Pacers coach Nate Bjorkgren. Great sign for the former Net after his health concerns.
Caris LeVert underwent successful surgery on Monday to treat renal cell carcinoma of his left kidney. The surgery was performed by Dr. Jason Sprunger at Community North Hospital in Indianapolis, Ind.
Michael Scotto: Caris LeVert thanked everyone for their support regarding his health, the Brooklyn Nets for his tenure with the organization, and expressed excitement for his new journey with the Indiana Pacers on Instagram.
LeVert, who has been ruled out indefinitely as he deals with the medical issue, spoke to reporters on Tuesday, explaining that if not for the trade, his medical condition likely wouldn’t have been discovered as soon as it was. “I didn’t have any symptoms. As you know, I was playing in games. I hadn’t missed any games this season yet,” LeVert said. “I was feeling 100 percent healthy, so in a way this trade definitely showed and revealed what was going on in my body. “I’m definitely looking at it from that side and definitely humbled to know that this trade could have possibly saved me in the long run.”
