Caris LeVert (ankle) played 18 minutes vs. the Knicks on Sunday, finishing with 12 points, three rebounds, two assists and one steal, making 5-of-8 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws.
The Nets will ease LeVert into the mix and his preseason injury has bumped him into 'undrafted' territory in most standard leagues. His craftiness and athleticism were on display tonight, albeit in short stints, and coach Kenny Atkinson took notice. "[LeVert's] energy is off the charts," he said. "I think we're starting to see what we thought when we drafted him."
