Bailey Mes diagnosed with a serious knee injury
June 27, 2013
LG Northern Mystics shooter Bailey Mes has been diagnosed with a serious knee injury.
Mes has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her left knee in the opening quarter of the match between the LG Mystics and Kia Magic in Round 14 of the ANZ Championship.
Mes left the court immediately after sustaining the injury with MRI scans this week confirming the ACL diagnosis.
LG Northern Mystics CEO Julie Paterson said Bailey’s injury was another blow to the squad.
“Bailey’s health and wellbeing are paramount and now she is aware of what steps she needs to take to make a full recovery.”
“We’ve never had a term like it with at least four serious injuries sustained throughout the year,” Paterson said.
“Now our ANZ Championship season is over, all the girls will get the opportunity to recuperate after what has been a challenging few months and we look forward to 2014!”
