A healthy Caris Levert hugged Kyrie Irving and his old Nets teammates before their matchup with his new team the Pacers, and it was heart warming as expected.
The NBA is a brotherhood, and you could tell his teammates were genuinely happy to see him doing well after the health scare he had during the trade. A few days after the James Harden trade went down doctors found a lump on Caris Levert’s kidney. At the time it was not known whether or not he had cancer.

The future is looking bright now, because Caris Levert had successful kidney surgery where they removed a renal cell carcinoma growth. Although there is no timetable for his return doctors believe he will make a full recovery.
Caris Levert hugging his Nets teammates today is a sign of the major progress he has made from the time of that major health scare.
