Michigan's Caris LeVert out for season

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Junior Michigan guard Caris LeVert injured his left foot during Saturday's game against Northwestern and is scheduled to have surgery this week. He will miss the remainder of the season following a 12-week recovery and rehabilitation period. LeVert had surgery on the same foot this past May.

"Caris has been working so hard this season, and for this to happen is very unfortunate," Michigan coach John Beilein said. "If we know anything about Caris, he will do everything it takes to not only get better but to help his teammates during this time. He is a tremendous young man who I will really miss coaching the remainder of the season. However, I am optimistic he will have a complete recovery."

"While this is obviously not what I wanted, I know this team will come together and be stronger because of it," LeVert said. "Now more than ever, it is important for all of us support this team. For me, I am familiar with the recovery process and what work lies ahead for me. I am very confident that I will return 100 percent and have already begun work to ensure that happens."

LeVert has started his past 55 games for the Wolverines and was leading Michigan in scoring (14.9), rebounds (4.9), assists (3.7), steals (1.7) and minutes (35.8). A preseason All-Big Ten selection, he had 13 double-figure scoring games with four 20-plus point games. This season he had posted several career highs, highlighted by a career-best 32 points against NJIT and a career-best nine assists against Hillsdale.
