LeVert has yet to make his debut with the Pacers after being traded to Indiana as part of the James Harden trade that involved four teams. When LeVert took his physical for the Pacers, the former first-round pick was discovered to have a form of cancer on his kidney.
Upon finding a mass on his kidney, LeVert immediately underwent surgery, sidelining him for the Pacers. However, Bjorkgren had positive news pertaining to LeVert, as the Michigan product is shooting and moving around as he hopes to play at some point this season.
On the other hand, Warren continues to rehab a left foot injury he suffered back in December. Warren underwent surgery on his foot after a loss to the Boston Celtics on Dec. 29. Bjorkgren iterated that Warren isn’t moving around much yet, but he expects him to get the green light to begin working out soon.
The Pacers hold a 14-14 record thus far, which is still tied for fourth-best in a poor Eastern Conference. Indiana has had to deal with a few major injuries this season, plus the trade of Victor Oladipo. While Bjorkgren doesn’t have a timetable for LeVert and Warren to play, it seems as if both players are trending in the right direction.
