(INDIANAPOLIS) – Indiana Pacers guard Caris LeVert is expected to make a full recover after undergoing surgery to treat renal cell carcinoma on his left kidney Monday. The surgery was performed by Dr. Jason Sprunger at Community Hospital North in Indianapolis. Team officials say no further treatment is needed. LeVert, who was acquired in the four team trade that sent James Harder to the Nets and Victor Oladipo to the Rockets, will remain out indefinitely. The small mass on his kidney was discovered during a team physical and medical tests prior to the trade being finalized. The Pacers' front office has pledged to support him and stick by him throughout the process with no time frame set on his return.
