What looked to be a big-time breakout season for Caris LeVert was put on hold as he missed nearly three months with a dislocated foot. Prior to the injury, he averaged 18.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.7 assists on 47.5 percent shooting. He started each of the Brooklyn Nets' first 14 games. The University of Michigan product made a surprisingly quick recovery and appeared in 40 regular season games. By the end of the campaign, LeVert was looking more like his early-season self. He scored double-digit points in seven of his last eight games, averaging 16 points on 48.9 percent shooting (45.2 percent on three-point attempts). The 6-foot-7 forward then took it to another level in the postseason. LeVert averaged 21 points -- including back-to-back games with at least 25 points -- 4.6 rebounds, and three assists while shooting 49.3 percent from the field. Overall, he produced career highs in most offensive categories. A dip in his shooting percentages can be explained by his increased role on the offensive end.2017
