Caris LeVert had surgery on Monday to treat renal cell carcinoma of his left kidney, and he is expected to make a full recovery.
The cancer was discovered during an MRI as part of LeVert's comprehensive physical after being traded to the Pacers. "I didn't have any symptoms. I was playing in games ... I was feeling 100 percent healthy," LeVert said recently. "So, in a way, this trade definitely showed and revealed what was going on in my body; so I'm definitely looking at it from that side and definitely humbled to know that this trade could've possibly saved me in the long run." The Pacers' statement adds that while LeVert will be out indefinitely, "no further treatment is needed." Get well soon, Caris. 2:02 pm (EST)
