New York Liberty guard/forward Jocelyn Willoughby underwent surgery Wednesday to repair her torn left Achilles tendon.

The second-year player sustained the injury during Monday’s scrimmage at Connecticut and she will miss the entire 2021 season.

The procedure was performed at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

Willoughby, 23, averaged 5.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 17.4 minutes in 22 games (five starts) as a rookie with the Liberty in 2020.

A first-round pick (10th overall) by the Phoenix Mercury out of Virginia in 2020, Willoughby was traded to New York on draft night for guard Shatori Walker-Kimbrough.
