Seattle Storm forward Breanna Stewart will not take the court for the remainder of the WNBA regular season due to an injury to her left foot.

In the defending champion Storm’s Tuesday night 105-71 win against the Washington Mystics, Stewart collided with Mystics forward Erica McCall in the third quarter and did not return to the floor.

After being evaluated by the Storm medical staff, the team announced that Stewart would miss Seattle’s final two regular-season games.

Stewart was not ruled out for the playoffs — which begin on Sept. 23 — but she will be re-evaluated next week to better determine her postseason status.

Stewart finishes her regular season play averaging 20.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.8 blocks in 28 games.

The star’s recent injury also sparked some déjà vu. In 2020, Stewart’s regular season ended due to a foot injury before leading the Storm to a 2020 WNBA title and winning the Finals MVP.
