The exact nature of the injury has not been reported, but the WNBA announced today that Chiney has undergone microfracture surgery on her right knee: Chiney Ogwumike out 6-9 months
Microfracture surgery is a procedure used to repair damaged knee cartilage. JJ Hones ('10) and Melanie Murphy ('11) had the procedure just after the end of the 2009-10 season. JJ's dismissal from the team came shortly afterwards. Mel returned and played the second half of the following season.
