Chiney's knee injury

Chiney injured her knee in November while playing in Italy for Famila Wuber Schio.

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.
