    Brooklyn Nets player Caris LeVert suffered a gruesome injury during the second quarter of the game between his team and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

    "Our thoughts should be with him and his recovery. And I don't want to talk about the game or anything else," Nets Coach Kenny Atkinson said, adding that LeVert's injury was a "devastating blow" for both the player and the team.
