UConn Huskies Paige Bueckers To Miss The 2022/23 Season With Injury

It was announced that UConn Huskies star guard Paige Bueckers will miss the 2022/23 season due to an injury. The junior guard suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee on August 1st. Bueckers got the injury playing in a pickup basketball game, an MRI confirmed an ACL tear. She will undergo surgery on Friday, August 5th at UConn Health.

This is the second major injury that Bueckers has faced in her very young basketball career as last season an injury kept her out for a majority or the regular season. If Paige Bueckers does enter the WNBA Draft in the future, most likely her draft value will be low due to her being injury prone. Bueckers is one of the most well known and hyped up college basketball players in the world, but will injuries make her a bust several years from now? Nevertheless when she is on the court she does nothing but produce heavily for her team and is one of the best players to be on the UConn team in the recent years.
