Here is part of the release:

Tulsa Shock guard Skylar Diggins will miss the remainder of the 2015 WNBA season due to tearing her right Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). She will undergo ACL reconstructive surgery, but a date for the procedure has not been set at the time of this release.

"I’m focused on getting healthy and stepping on the court even stronger," said Diggins. "For the remainder of this season, I will continue to support my teammates in every way possible."
