Injuries plaguing Mystics

June 8, 2011 2:52pm

The Washington Mystics are the first victims of the 11-man roster restriction. Veteran SF Monique Currie suffered a torn ACL while playing overseas in Turkey this past winter. Star SG Alana Beard missed all of the 2010 WNBA season after having surgery to repair a torn tendon in her left ankle. She is now hobbled by a left foot sprain (did not play against the Connecticut Sun on June 4), but the injuries are not related.

The latest injury news pertains to the health of rookie center Ta’Shia Phillips. Phillips suffered an ankle tendon injury during workouts on Tuesday, and her availability for Thursday’s game against Atlanta is in question.

With Phillips’ injury, the Mystics are down to eight healthy players. Under WNBA rules, the Mystics can sign a replacement player until one of the three injured players returns.
