Stewart, the reigning WNBA MVP capped off her impressive season with a dominant run in the WNBA playoffs and a WNBA championship.
“I don’t think it’s a career-ending type of injury,” her father, Brian Stewart said, according to Syracuse.com. “But it’s certainly going to put her in the barn for a while.”
