Caris LeVert is primed for a breakout campaign this upcoming season. He’s got all the intangibles: athleticism, physicality, great footwork and timing, his playmaking has drastically improved as well as his decision making, and his shot can be respectable though it lacks consistency still. However, one unfortunate factor that deterred him in already making that proverbial leap: injury complications.
With KD out of the lineup, LeVert can emerge a reliable second-option in Atkinson’s offense, but he has to stay on the court, something that has plagued him throughout his young career. In his first three seasons in the NBA, Caris has missed a total of 78 games—or an average of 26 games per season.
He’s got the talent and upside to justify an early selection—especially in deeper leagues—but his injury history is significant.
He’s going to be given the platform this upcoming season to shine and if he can remain healthy, he could be the difference-maker not just for the Nets but your fantasy team as well.
