Caris LeVert Undergoes Surgery On Foot
By Ashley Dunkak
CBS DETROIT – With Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III headed to the NBA, Michigan has already lost its two leading scorers from the 2013-2014 team. For a few weeks this offseason, the Wolverines are also without their third-leading scorer from that team, Caris LeVert.
“Caris underwent surgery today for a stress fracture of his foot at the University of Michigan hospital,” head coach John Beilein stated in a press release Monday night. “He is doing well and we expect him to make a full recovery in about 8 to 10 weeks. We are confident he will participate in our late summer training and play in our August trip to Europe.”
With Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. having left after the 2012-2013 season, LeVert – like Stauskas and Robinson – had much more opportunity this past season, and LeVert took advantage. His playing time increased from 10.8 minutes per game to 34, and his scoring increased from 2.3 points per game to 12.9. He also contributed 4.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists on average.
