Washington Mystics lose Kristi Toliver for rest of season with ACL injury

Washington Mystics star Kristi Toliver will miss the rest of the season after she tore her ACL, coach Eric Thibault confirmed on Tuesday.

Toliver went down with a non-contact knee injury near the end of the Mystics’ 72-64 loss to the Los Angeles Sparks on Sunday night after trying to make a move just past half court. She was then carried off the court, and did not return.

The 36-year-old has played in just 11 games this season after missing much of the year with plantar fasciitis. She only played in 11 games last season, and only 19 during the 2021 season due to various injuries.
