Tessa Lavey to miss start of season


The Perth Lynx have been dealt an injury blow one week ahead of the season opener.

Captain Tessa Lavey has undergone surgery to remove a blood vessel from her ankle and will miss three to four weeks of basketball.

The vessel had swollen in such a way that it was placing pressure on a nerve, causing significant pain.

The Olympian is likely to miss the opening three games of the season and is targeting a Sunday 30 October return, when the Perth Lynx host the Adelaide Lightning.

The Lynx open the WNBL season on Friday 7 October when they meet the Sydney Flames.
