Cleveland Cavaliers fans hadn’t seen Caris LeVert for a few games but he was back and ready to play on Tuesday night.
Speaking with Bally Sports Cleveland, LeVert revealed how “happy” he is to be back with the team.
“I felt good on both ends of the ball,” he said.
He added, “I tried to make winning plays on both ends. My body felt good so I was just happy to be back out there with my teammates.”

LeVert definitely helped his squad, scoring 11 points, 2 rebounds, and 3 assists off the bench.
He played for 22 minutes, which was more than some people expected since he was returning from an injury.
But the help wasn’t enough, as the Cavaliers fell to the Boston Celtics, 120-113.
The team is currently on a four-game road trip, which hasn’t gone exactly as planned.
Cleveland first scored an impressive win over the Miami Heat at the start of the trip but have now faced back-to-back losses to the Orlando Magic and Celtics.
They have one more game before they head home and it’s again versus Boston.
The Cavaliers have been suffering from injuries all season, and LeVert’s is just the latest of many.
Sadly, Ty Jerome and Evan Mobley are both still out of the rotation with their own injuries.
But LeVert is back and ramping up and feeling good, which is positive news for the team that needs all the help it can get.
So far this season, LeVert has averaged 14.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.5 assists.
Those points, rebounds, and assists could definitely help the Cavaliers moving forward.
