Fewer than three months ago, Nets wing Caris LeVert suffered an injury so horrific-looking, teammates cried and opponents prayed.

Now, he’s on the verge of returning.

Thankfully, LeVert “only” dislocated his foot. Brooklyn quickly said he’d return this season, and now a clearer timeline is emerging.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

The Nets have surged since LeVert went down, going 22-18 and climbing to sixth in the East. I don’t think that’s about missing LeVert, though. This is a young team improving on the fly.

Though there should be concern about disrupting chemistry, that’s lessened by Spencer Dinwiddie being sidelined. Brooklyn could use another playmaker. Plus, LeVert’s balanced offensive game should help him fit into most situations.

This is a nice addition for the Nets in what has surprisingly become their playoff push.
