Sabrina Ionescu Out With Severe Ankle Sprain
NEW YORK (AP) — Sabrina Ionescu is headed to New York to see an ankle and foot specialist. The Liberty announced that the No. 1 pick in the WNBA draft was diagnosed with a Grade 3 left ankle sprain after getting hurt in the second quarter against Atlanta last Friday. The team said that X-rays taken at a hospital were negative but that an MRI revealed the sprain. A Grade 3 sprain is the most severe and usually requires months to fully heal as it’s a full tear of the ankle ligament. This level of sprain causes severe pain, swelling and bruising.
