Sources: Pacers’ LeVert has stress fracture (back)


Indiana Pacers guard Caris LeVert has a stress fracture in his back, but there’s optimism that it could only be a minor setback and he could return sometime around the start of the season, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Tuesday.

LeVert, who was traded to Indiana from Brooklyn as part of the James Harden deal, will undergo more testing, sources told ESPN.

He averaged 20.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 35 games for the Pacers last season.

LeVert’s physical with the Pacers following the trade revealed a cancerous mass on his kidney that required surgery in January. He eventually made his Pacers debut in March.
