Brittany Boyd, who has had a tremendous rookie season for the New York Liberty, has undergone wrist surgery, the Liberty announced.

Here is the release:

The New York Liberty announced today that rookie guard Brittany Boyd successfully underwent surgery on her left wrist. The procedure, which was performed by Dr. Richard Hotchkiss at Hospital for Special Surgery, repaired a fracture which she suffered during the third quarter of the Liberty's game against the Chicago Sky on Thursday night. Expected recovery time is 5-6 weeks.

This is a tough blow to the Liberty, as they are primed to make a deep run in the WNBA Playoffs.
