Caris LeVert undergoes surgery on kidney cancer

Caris LeVert cancer

Brand-new Indiana Pacer Caris LeVert has undergone surgery on his kidney “to treat renal cell carcinoma.” The cancerous mass was found during an MRI after he was acquired by the Pacers from the Nets in the James Harden mega-trade.

The Pacers announced on their Twitter that LeVert is done with the surgery and that no further treatment is required at this time.

Indiana traded franchise stalwart Victor Oladipo to the Houston Rockets, who in-turn flipped them the just-acquired Caris LeVert. LeVert was a Rocket in principal for less than an hour before being traded. His physical for the team resulted in the MRI that was able to detect the cancer.

LeVert does not have a timetable for his return to the court. He is still listed as out of the lineup “indefinitely,” but his next game will indeed be his first as a Pacer.
