Caris LeVert, college basketball player for University of Michigan, sacrificed his foot while leaping for a rebound at the end of last Saturday’s Northwestern game. He landed awkwardly on his left foot and as of Sunday, University of Michigan announced he has to get surgery. Due to the surgery and a 12 week recovery and rehab program, this will mark the end of LeVert’s season.
Unfortunately, this is not his first foot injury. He also had the same foot injury about 10 months ago. Caris LaVert says, “For me, I am familiar with the recovery process and what work lies ahead for me. I am very confident that I will return 100 percent and have already begun work to ensure that happens." LeVert’s coach John Beilein says, “Right afterwards I spoke with his mom and both doctors and they were really pleased with the operation itself.”
