Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Three-time WNBA MVP Lauren Jackson will miss a third consecutive season after undergoing another knee surgery, the Seattle Storm said Tuesday.
"Lauren's health and recovery remains the top priority as we continue the dialogue regarding her future in Seattle," Storm general manager Alisha Valavanis said in a statement. "We know at this time Lauren will not compete in the 2015 WNBA season. We continue to wish Lauren all the best as she recovers and begins rehab."
Jackson missed the 2013 and 2014 seasons due to knee, Achilles and hamstring injuries. She played just nine games in her last season in 2012.
The Australian star was named MVP three times between 2003-10 and has led the Storm to two league titles.
