Currie likely out for the season
The Mystics announced today that forward Monique Currie will probably miss the upcoming WNBA season following surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee. Currie injured her knee while playing in Turkey during the WNBA offseason.
From the team's news release:
"It is unfortunate that we won't have Monique for the 2011 season, although she probably will not return to the court, her leadership and knowledge of the game will continue to benefit our team," said [General Manager and CoachTrudi] Lacey. "I am confident that our team will work hard and stay together to make the upcoming year the best possible."
Currie was acquired by the Mystics in 2007 following a trade with the Chicago Sky. Last season, she averaged 14.1 points per game and 4.8 rebounds per game. Currie also led the team in three point field goal percentage (.446).
"I am extremely grateful for and appreciate the support of the fans and look forward to returning to the court," said Currie.
The Mystics' season begins June 4 on the road against the Connecticut Sun.
