Michigan junior Caris LeVert is having trouble deciding his next step in his basketball career while in a walking boot. According to University of Michigan coach John Beilein, LeVert is still learning more about his possible place in the 2015 NBA draft and is deciding between returning for his senior year or moving on to a professional career. After undergoing surgery January 21st for his full foot fracture, LeVert has been in the middle of recovery and rehabilitation.
He looks to return to the court in May. The athlete’s health and recovery are heavy factors on his decision to stay with Michigan or move on to the NBA. “Coming back next year would be very fun for me and very beneficial for me and the team as well,” LeVert said. “Going to the NBA would also be fun. That’s a lifetime dream. It’s definitely going to be a tough decision.”

Foot Rehabilitation for Athletes
Injured athletes are always looking for better, faster ways to aid their recovery and get back to the sport they love. To do this, podiatrists and physical therapists are often consulted so the injured athlete can get back onto the field as soon as possible. But rehabbing an injury is just as serious as the injury itself, and going through the motions of physical therapy or rehabilitation is a necessary process to keeping that injury at bay.
Sports Therapist or Physical Therapist?
If an athlete gets a foot injury, it is essential to receive foot rehabilitation to ensure proper healing. It is important for an athlete to become healed properly because if they attempt to get back into their game before they are physically well, they could re-aggravate the original injury or even suffer a new one due to their weakened state.
