Michigan’s Caris LeVert has been cleared to start practicing as the Wolverines prepare for a preseason trip to Italy.
The 6-foot-6 wing had ankle surgery in May and his recovery has been relegated to studying film. After three months of recovering, LeVert is a bit rusty and not yet 100 percent.
“Caris started playing last week, but he’s not himself yet,” head coach John Beilein told reporters earlier this week. “As you can imagine, he was pretty much dormant for 16 weeks and so you’ll see some of those flashes today. It’s just a matter of him getting back in game shape.”
LeVert, entering his junior season, averaged averaged 12.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists last season. From 3-point range, he shot nearly 41 percent.
