Currie likely out for the season

By Washington Post editors

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.

Best wishes to Monique Currie for a speedy & successful recovery.

Note: The Mystics last season won more games then then Skins have done three years in total. Women's Basketball isn't bad, try it you probably will like it.

I can't understand why some of these morons, who clearly don't like / understand / apprecaiate the sport comment here attempting to be what humorous? I don't comment on your horse racing, leave my basketball alone. Hopefully Mo will make a full recovery, this sucks because we'll have Alana back (she would have gotten up further in the playoffs last year), but without Currie we'll still be incomplete. Hopefully the Mystics will make an aggressive move this year and make a splash in free agency maybe. That would be great, but as long as they re-sign my Lindsay, we should be OK. Time for Coleman to STEP UP.

Ugh, the curse of Lez Boulezz strikes again. How many different top players can one etam lose to season-ending off-season knee injuries?
