The New York Liberty will be without Jocelyn Willoughby for at least six weeks after she was diagnosed with a partial tear of her left quadriceps tendon.

Willoughby received a PRP injection and already has started to rehab the injury, but she likely will be out until July.

The third-year wing did not appear in Tuesday’s loss to the Connecticut Sun, in which the team committed 29 turnovers. Through four games this season, she has averaged 6.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and one steal.

Willoughby had just made her way back from tearing her left Achilles tendon, which caused the 2020 draft pick to miss the 2021 season.

Her injury is another trial for the Liberty, who have lost four games in a row and are looking to get back on track against the Minnesota Lynx next Tuesday.
