Caris LeVert will miss four to six weeks, sources disclosed to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, after the Brooklyn Nets guard experienced surgery Thursday to repair ligaments in his right thumb.

In reporting the method, the Nets didn’t give a timeline for LeVert’s return, saying he was out uncertainly and that updates on his status “will be provided as appropriate.”

LeVert, 25, was set to miss his second straight game Thursday with what the Nets initially diagnosed as a minor sprain. He is Brooklyn’s third-leading scorer this season, averaging 16.8 points in nine games.

Additionally, Nets All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving had been questionable for Thursday’s game in Denver against the Nuggets because of right shoulder impingement, however, he has been moved up to likely to play.
