Candice is done for the season

From the Associated Press report of tonight's Lynx vs Liberty game:

. . . the Lynx lost Candice Wiggins to a ruptured Achilles tendon in their 75-68 win over the New York Liberty on Tuesday night.

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. She was really getting going and playing well, she's a leader so we're going to miss some intangibles and certainly some very specific basketball things and we're just going to have to find a way to fill the void."
