Indiana Pacers guard Caris LeVert ruled out indefinitely after mass found on kidney

The Indiana Pacers have announced that newly acquired guard Caris LeVert will be out indefinitely after an MRI revealed a small mass on his kidney during the physical to finalize the four-team deal that sent James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets. Per the Pacers, LeVert is set to undergo further medical testing.

LeVert issued a statement to his new fanbase on the situation, writing, "On behalf of my family and myself, we want to thank the Indiana Pacers for their support and guidance. We are grateful for their extreme thoroughness during the physical process and I am looking forward to joining the team and being part of this great organization as soon as possible."

Pacers' President of Basketball Operations Kevin Pritchard also issued a statement, saying, "We acquired Caris because of who he is as a young man first and foremost. His basketball skill and on court play speaks for itself and we know he has a great career ahead of him. We will support Caris through this time and know that he will join us on the court as soon as he is able."

LeVert was averaging 18.5 points, 6.0 assists and 4.3 rebounds over 12 games with the Nets, set to make a significant impact for Indiana when he is able to return to action.
