Michigan has been without leading scorer Caris LeVert since he suffered a season-ending foot fracture on Jan. 17 in a win over Northwestern. It's still unclear if that will be LeVert's final game in a Michigan uniform, as the junior guard still is projected as a first-round NBA draft pick. In his latest mock draft, ESPN's Chad Ford projects LeVert, at 6-foot-6, 185 pounds, as the No. 29 pick, going to the Brooklyn Nets. "The Nets will drop about 15 spots lower than they should be thanks to the Joe Johnson trade, but they could still come out looking OK if they land LeVert," Ford wrote. "They need a long, versatile wing who can shoot and eventually replace Joe Johnson. LeVert would probably be 5 to 10 spots higher if he hadn't gotten injured this season."
