New York’s preliminary fears have now been confirmed: starting point guard Brittany Boyd has a torn Achilles, and will miss the remainder of the season, per the team.

“Brittany suffered an unfortunate injury after working hard to come into this season prepared to lead our team from the point guard position,” said Liberty head coach Bill Laimbeer. “She had an excellent training camp, and was poised for a breakout season, as evidenced by the way she performed in our first two games. We are all hoping for a speedy recovery.”

More details to come.
