Sports Minute: Wings without 2 injured veterans for rest of WNBA season
BRADETON, Florida (AP) — The Dallas Wings will be without forward Isabelle Harrison and guard Moriah Jefferson for the rest of this season because of injuries.
The Wings said Monday that Harrison has had multiple injuries to her left ankle, and that Jefferson will be having surgery on her injured left knee. Neither played in the Wings' loss Sunday against the Los Angeles Sparks.
Harrison, the 6-foot-3 forward who started 11 of her 13 games, re-injured her ankle Friday in a win over Washington. The team said she will miss the rest of the season, though she will continue to be evaluated while determining a treatment plan.
Jefferson has missed the last five games after an injury to her left knee, and will likely have surgery in early September. The team said the injury is similar to the one she had in her surgically repaired right knee.
The No. 2 overall pick out of UConn in the 2016 WNBA Draft by San Antonio, the 5-6 Jefferson hasn't played a full season since. She missed 13 games in 2017, the first 17 games in 2018 and didn't play at all last season after being traded to the Wings.
Harrison was averaging 6.4 points and 4.6 rebounds a game while shooting 45% from the field. Jefferson was averaging 5.0 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
