Nets guard Caris LeVert suffered a gruesome leg injury Monday night, leaving the game against the Timberwolves in Minneapolis on a stretcher at the end of the second quarter.
LeVert's right leg buckled upon hitting the court following a block attempt. He immediately grabbed his knee upon falling and placed his hands on his head before doctors saw to him.
As fans saw what happened, Twitter users offered thought and prayers. For many, the injury was reminiscent of Gordon Hayward's season ending injury last season.
Here's what athletes, reporters and other Twitter users had to say:
The Nets are 6–7 this season.
