“Caris LeVert played in practice today. He’s getting closer and closer, it won’t be too much longer,” coach Nate Bjorkgren told reporters on Thursday. He added that there’s “a chance” LeVert could play during the road trip.
LeVert underwent surgery to treat renal cell carcinoma of his left kidney in late January. The Pacers said at the time that no further treatment was needed.
“[LeVert] looks good. To me, he looks ready to play,” Brogdon told The Indianapolis Star. “A complete game changer. He changes the scouting report. Having another dynamic scorer on the floor can really help this team.”
LeVert, 26, averaged 18.5 points and 6 assists in 12 games for Brooklyn prior to the trade.
