The Las Vegas Aces provided an update on Angel McCoughtry Monday, stating that the forward has torn her right ACL and meniscus.

The news comes after McCoughtry was carried off of the court during Saturday’s preseason game against the Los Angeles Sparks. She went down after a rebound 2:49 into the first quarter.

McCoughtry will undoubtedly be missed. Last season, despite playing just 20 minutes a game, she averaged 14.4 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. Not to mention, she brings a veteran presence to a team that has high expectations heading into the season.

This is McCoughtry’s second run-in with a knee injury, having missed the entire 2019 season due to an injury to her left knee. Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery.
