Wiggins, Minnesota's first-round draft choice out of Stanford in 2008, injured her left leg in the fourth quarter and left the game with 8 seconds remaining.
"Win the game, lose a player, kind of thing for the year," Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve said. "Our hearts go out to Candice. Candice gives us a lot of things, she gives us flexibility, she gives a second ball handler.

Candice felt her return was everything she could have hoped for.
"It was amazing," she said. "It was everything I was imagining it would be. Just – you know – the plight of an injured player is so up and down and frustrating and then just to play like this is amazing. I felt good."
