“It wasn’t really nagging me like that, it was kind of just a bother a little bit," LeVert said to MLive.com. "A lot of times, after the games, I’d feel it hurting a little bit. But it wasn’t hurting me to the point where I couldn’t play.

LeVert averaged 12.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists and shot 41 percent from 3-point range last season.
