Caris LeVert has been ruled out indefinitely after a pre-trade physical revealed a small mass on his left kidney.
While the portion of the blockbuster James Harden trade involving the Rockets, Nets and Cavaliers was made official on Friday, the deal between the Pacers and Rockets (involving Victor Oladipo) was held out. And now we know why, as the Pacers announced that LeVert will be out indefinitely due to this kidney issue. LeVert will undergo more tests, and it is unknown how much time he will miss. "On behalf of my family and myself, we want to thank the Indiana Pacers for their support and guidance," LeVert said in a statement released by the Pacers. "We are grateful for their extreme thoroughness during the physical process and I am looking forward to joining the team and being part of this great organization as soon as possible."
