Brooklyn Nets young star Caris LeVert had the whole basketball world sending him positive thoughts Monday night after he suffered an injury that in a word was, gruesome.

LeVert was racing back to try to block a shot and his leg bent awkwardly when he landed. He returned to NY with the team and was evaluated at the Hospital for Special Surgery. In addition to LeVert's injury, Rose was on the floor a year ago when Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward dislocated his ankle against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and he was there when Paul George broke his leg during a Team USA game in 2014. He is averaging 18.4 points and is the only player in the league this season to convert multiple go-ahead baskets with less than 10 seconds remaining in regulation or overtime. "We didn't talk even when we came in at halftime. Guys were crying. It was really that horrific just to see".

LeVert was one of the most improved players this season.
