Oh No . . . Now Mo!

Or perhaps we should say, Oh No . . . No Mo!

We wish it weren't true, but apparently it is. Confirming a rumor that's been bouncing around the message boards for the last month or so, the Mystics announced today that Monique Currie did indeed suffer a torn ACL while playing in Turkey this WNBA off-season.

Today, Mo underwent surgery at Sibley Hospital to repair the torn ligament.

As our readers know, an ACL tear is usually a season-ending injury, and the Mystics said today that it's unlikely Mo will be able to play this summer. So for the second time in two years, the Mystics have lost a starter even before the season opener. First Alana, now Mo. Aargh.

We hope the Mystics are as successful in coping with this latest set-back as they were in dealing with Alana's absence from the line-up last season.

But most of all, we hope that Mo makes a full and speedy recovery! Get well soon, Mo!

Man, I think the Stics are cursed! Do we know if they'll be in the same roster situation as last season with AB? Do they have to keep her spot even if she won't be playing?

This is very unfortunate. I enjoyed watching Mo really take a big step forward last year. She really was great at attacking the basket and of course her D is always good. I wish her the best in her recovery. The mystics will miss her skills for sure. Let's see who steps up this year like she did last year in Alana's absence.

Even when Alana is healthy, Mo's my favorite player. I just like watching her play. So depressing.

Another example of Mystics/Monumental "transparency?" Mo's injury was known by anyone with a Twitter account or access to Google Translator.

My best wishes for a speedy recovery for Mo.

Wait, I do not have Twitter, Facebook, nor a Google Translator (that I know of), yet I had heard about Mo's injury back in December.I knew that she had hurt her ACL, but did not know the extend. I saw it on different blogs. But let's blame the Mystics for our lack of searching the web for our players.
