Today’s Brooklyn Nets news features guards Allen Crabbe and Caris LeVert struggling with ankle injuries through training camp.
According to Brian Lewis of the New York Post, two Nets guards have suffered ankle injuries during training camp.
Crabbe sprained his ankle earlier this week after only two days of practice with the team. He’s made it out of a walking boot, but has been limited to free throws in practice.
LeVert is a fresh injury, or a “tweak” as he puts it. He took a wrong step towards the end of practice Saturday, but it doesn’t appear to be serious.
LeVert hopes to practice Monday, while Crabbe will remain out for the time being. Despite the injuries, head coach Kenny Atkinson is still happy with what he saw in training camp.
“(I was) pleased with camp, I was pleased with the scrimmage. A lot of guys competed, we mixed lineups a lot, looked at different things. Just overall good feeling coming out of camp.”
The Brooklyn Nets are coming off a year as the league’s worst team, and recording a 20-62 record.
A lot of hype is built around this season following the summer acquisitions, and it all begins this Tuesday. Brooklyn will open the preseason against the New York Knicks at 7:30 PM EST.
