Former Michigan guard Caris LeVert, who hopes to be selected in the NBA draft this summer, had surgery on his left foot this week in New York.
Michigan released a statement from LeVert on Saturday regarding the procedure:
“University of Michigan senior guard Caris LeVert announced today (Saturday, March 26) he underwent a successful procedure on his left foot. The surgery was performed by Dr. Martin O’Malley on Tuesday, March 22, at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.”
LeVert played in just 15 games this season, averaging 16.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists.
He was injured in Michigan’s Big Ten opener against Illinois. UM called it a “lower left leg” injury then and for the remainder of the season, though there was speculation that LeVert had reinjured his left foot. LeVert had surgery on that left foot the previous season after playing in just 18 games.
LeVert would attempt to play in just one more game in 2015-16, Feb. 13 against Purdue, but he saw just 11 first-half minutes and didn’t play in the second half.
Finally, on March 1, Michigan announced there would be no more attempted comebacks.
