LeVert finished with 22 points (8-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five assists, four rebounds, and three steals in 23 minutes during Saturday's 91-77 preseason victory over the Lakers.
LeVert did most of his damage in the first half, dominating on both ends of the floor. He had been questionable heading into the game with a minor eye concern but he appeared untroubled. LeVert is looking to build on his breakout season and figures to feature heavily in what the Nets' are doing moving forward. He is currently being taken in the middle rounds of most drafts but that could trend up slightly after this performance.
LeVert (eye) is listed as questionable for Saturday's preseason game against the Lakers in China, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.
LeVert was poked in the eye during Thursday's preseason game against the Lakers and apparently is still recovering. While it doesn't seem like an issue that will linger into the regular season, it's entirely possible the Nets will play it safe and hold him out Saturday.
LeVert started Thursday's preseason game against the Lakers but left early in the first quarter after appearing to get poked in the eye, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
The Nets lost both LeVert and Kyrie Irving (face) in quick succession, and neither player ultimately returned to the game. For now, consider LeVert day-to-day as Saturday's rematch with the Lakers approaches.
LeVert totaled 13 points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine assists, three steals, and two rebounds in 20 minutes during Friday's 137-89 preseason victory over Franca.
LeVert started at shooting guard, handing out a game-high nine assists. Both Kyrie Irving (face) and Joe Harris (rest) were out for this game and so it is certainly not a true reflection on what is to come. However, LeVert is almost certainly going to be a member of the starting five and is seen as a crucial part of what the Nets are doing. He can put up numbers across the board and managers will likely have to part with a pick in the middle rounds if they hope to acquire his services.
