NETS: Brooklyn forward Caris LeVert felt the pain in his right foot and thought it was just a sprain.

That is, until he looked down.

A week removed from dislocating his right foot – a grotesque injury that looked so much worse than what it actually was – LeVert spoke Monday about what happened.

“The pain level felt like a regular sprain and I knew I kind of fell on the side of my ankle,” LeVert said, talking to reporters at the Nets’ facility in Brooklyn, New York. “And obviously when I looked at it, I was like, ‘Wow, that’s messed up.'”
