Briann January out for season
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana Fever point guard Briann January will miss the rest of the season with a torn right knee ligament.
The Fever said Wednesday that an MRI exam revealed a torn ACL and that January would have surgery in four to six weeks, performed by team orthopedist Dr. Stephen Kollias.
January was hurt Tuesday during the fourth quarter of a 91-86 victory over Phoenix, the Fever's fourth straight win. The third-year pro from Arizona State was averaging 8.6 points and 5.0 assists for the Eastern Conference leaders.
