Las Vegas Aces forward Dearica Hamby is expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks after suffering a right knee bone contusion in Tuesday’s game against the Atlanta Dream, according to the team.
The injury occurred when the two-time WNBA All-Star landed awkwardly as she was attempting a layup in a 97-90 win over the Dream. She had to be helped to the locker room and didn’t return to the game.
Hamby’s injury means the Aces will be short-handed when they face No. 1 seed Chicago Sky on Thursday and likely through the first round of the playoffs.
Hamby, 28, was averaging 9.3 points and 7.1 rebounds in 34 games (32 starts) this season. She has been with the franchise since 2015, the first three seasons when the team was housed in San Antonio before moving to Las Vegas prior to the 2018 season.
Though she was struggling offensively before she was injured, Hamby was still considered a crucial part of the rotation because of her energy and defense.
