Doctors continue to evaluate the 24-year-old guard's adversity.

The Nets said LeVert would undergo a full evaluation at the hospital and further updates would be issued as available.

Brooklyn Nets guard Caris LeVert left Monday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves with what appeared to be a severe right leg injury with 3.7 seconds left in the first half. He was eventually taken off the court via stretcher to be checked out and got a round of supportive applause from the crowd.
