Las Vegas Aces player Angel McCoughtry was carried off the court with an apparent right knee injury during the team’s preseason game against the Los Angeles Sparks.
The Ace’s forward went down in pain after an attempted rebound. McCoughtry was helped off the court, putting zero weight on her leg.
She was then ruled out of Saturday’s game and eventually brought back to the locker room.
At this time, there is no further word from the team on the extent of McCoughtry’s injuries.
Ahead of Saturday’s incident, the Aces were considered a favorite going into the regular season. McCoughtry was a vital force in the team’s finals run last year, averaging 14.4 points per game.
This isn’t McCoughtry’s first run-in with injury. She was out for the entire 2019 season after suffering an injury to her left knee.
