Caris LeVert scored 10 points on 4-for-9 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, two 3-pointers and two steals in Friday's loss to Toronto.
LeVert, who has struggled with injuries in the past, logged 24 minutes on Friday – good for second on the team. It's good to see him play well in extended preseason minutes as the only thing that's kept him from making a jump as a fantasy asset has been his health.

Caris Levert led the Nets over the Lakers on Saturday 91-77, scoring 22 points to go with four rebounds, five assists and three steals in 23 minutes.
Levert was questionable for this game after getting poked in the eye on Thursday but that didn't slow him down as put on a show, shooting 8-of-11 from the field and 3-of-4 from downtown. Taurean Prince added 14 points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal and four triples in 21 minutes off the bench as Rodions Kurucs got the start in this one without much to show on the stat sheet, also playing 21 minutes.

Caris LeVert (eye) is questionable for Saturday's tilt against the Lakers.
LeVert left one minute into the last game after he got poked in the eye. The Nets just appear to just be acting cautiously and probably want to take a closer look at some of the newer players at the end of their bench. Expect an update on LeVert's status closer to game time.

Caris LeVert left Thursday's game against the Lakers after just one minute after getting poked in the eye.
Assuming there is nothing more to the injury, LeVert should be ready for the regular season with a little under two weeks to go before the regular season opener.

Caris Levert flashed his playmaking ability on Friday night with nine assists to go along with 13 points, three steals and one three as the Nets defeated Franca.
This could be a big year for Levert, who just needs to stay healthy and should finally enjoy the breakout season everyone is waiting for. The added playmaking can only further increase his fantasy appeal.

The Nets and Caris LeVert have agreed to terms on a three-year, $52.5 million contract extension, as per Adrian Wojnarowski.
This makes sense for the Nets, who have long extolled their love for LeVert's long-term outlook. This sounds like they're fully committed to making him a core player. Enjoy his upside this season, as he will likely take a usage hit when Kevin Durant returns to full health and takes the floor.

Caris Levert shot 6-for-12 from the floor for 18 points with three boards, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes for a 122-100 loss to the Sixers in Game 5 on Tuesday.
Levert has been an incredible story this season and its unfortunate his season has come to a close. He battled back from an awful injury early in the season to play at a high level. Levert came back strong to where he was easily the Nets best player in this series. He looks to bounce back stronger than ever next season.

Caris LeVert played 42 minutes in Saturday's Game 4 loss scoring 25 points with five rebounds, six assists, one setal and three 3-pointers.
LeVert was expected to play more in this game after only logging 23.7 minutes per game over the first three. He once again looked healthy and commanded the game at times. After watching today's game you could not have guessed he suffered a gruesome injury earlier this season.

LeVert is expected to play more in Game 4 than the 23.7 minutes per game he has averaged this series.
LeVert played 28 minutes last game, putting up 26 points on 10-of-17 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block and three triples. He exceeded 30 minutes only once in the Nets' last 13 games but with the team in danger of falling into a 1-3 hole, giving him more minutes may not be a bad idea as he has arguably been their best player so far this series.

Caris LeVert was easily the Nets' best player on Thursday, scoring 26 points off the bench in just 28 minutes as the Nets fell in Game 3.
It seems criminal that LeVert only played 28 minutes, as he was a big reason this game wasn't a complete blowout. If he doesn't see huge minutes in Game 4, mistakes have been made.

Caris LeVert scored 23 points on 8-for-18 shooting including three 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in Saturday's win against the Sixers.
LeVert was looking like his pre-injury self for possibly the first time since returning. If the Nets bench can play like they did in this once, they'll have a legitimate chance of an upset, with one win already locked up.

Caris LeVert wrapped up a promising regular season vs. the Heat on Wednesday with 10 points (4-of-5 from the field), three rebounds, four assists and a trey in 20 minutes.
LeVert's season was one to remember as he started off looking like an all-star, then cooled off, then suffered an assumed season-ending injury, then returned as a shell of himself, and then finally got back to looking like the player that started the season over the last few weeks. Despite all the excitement, LeVert only ended up producing top-160/180 value per game in his 40 games. Expect him to be a bit overhyped next season while his percentages get overlooked (42.8 FG, 69.1 FT).

Caris LeVert continued his late surge with 18 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in Sunday's win over the Pacers.
LeVert looks to have found his stride right as the Nets lock in their playoff spot. He had a pretty good case for Most Improved before his injury paved the way for D'Angelo Russell to claim his candidacy, so a healthy LeVert would make the Nets among the tougher first-round matchups for the East's elite. Joe Harris' reliable play manifested in 19 points (7-of-11 FG), four triples and a steal tonight.
The Nets are back in the mix and will look to take another big leap this summer
