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.
