Storm Lose Jackson for At Least Three Weeks



By Lee Michaelson
Publisher

It was a good news/bad news story for the Seattle Storm on Friday. On the up side, the Storm stretched their winning streak to two with a 65-55 home win over the Minnesota Lynx. The win maintained the reputation of Key Arena as one of the toughest venues for visitors, and after starting the season badly, the Storm are now tied with the Los Angeles Sparks at 4-2 for third place in the Western Conference.

The bad news: Tests confirmed that the left hip injury, a labrial tear, suffered by superstar Lauren Jackson during the Storm’s 82-77 road win at Tulsa Tuesday is serious enough to sideline Jackson for at least the next three weeks.

“A second test confirmed that Lauren Jackson has a labral injury in her left hip,” announced Storm head coach Brian Agler. “This injury is often treated effectively with rest and physical therapy. We are going to rest Lauren for a week before increasing her activity level. At this point, we expect her to be out for a minimum of three weeks. If she does not demonstrate adequate progress after three weeks of therapy and ramped up activity, surgery will be considered.”
