Caris LeVert will sit out Michigan’s Big Ten home opener this afternoon against Penn State with a lower left leg injury

“Caris will miss today’s game and his future status will be determined on a day-to-day basis,” John Beilein said in a statement. “We hope to know more this upcoming week as he continues with his treatment.”

LeVert appeared to injure himself late in Michigan’s win at Illinois, but stayed in the game. Here’s footage of the potential injury.

    This is not what I was hoping for in 2016!

  • Chris De Sana

    Maybe move Zak into that slot?

  • Wayman Britt

    Oh no!

    No. Not another injury… Right as this team was hitting it’s groove. Hurts big time with the 5 position too!

    Would love to hear from those who have more tenure in reading the tealeaves here, but from JB’s post game comments and general “?” status, I would think that Purdue (at least) is probably this same lineup
