LAS VEGAS, NV (May 10, 2021)—Las Vegas Aces forward-guard Angel McCoughtry sustained a right ACL injury on May 8 in Los Angeles after coming down with an offensive rebound with 2:49 gone in the first quarter of the team’s exhibition game against the Sparks.
“During the last game, I had an accident on the court. Eerily similar to what happened to me the first time, and my results came back as a torn ACL, torn meniscus. I was heartbroken. Again.
Initially, every negative thought came to my head. Then I realized … this game has been such a blessing to me and so has God. I will conquer this challenge even better than last time. I will recover and fight my way back to the court. I still have tons of basketball to play, God has ALWAYS delivered for me … and it’s not over yet!
Thank you to my amazing teammates and the @lvaces organization for being so supportive. Let’s Go Aces!!”
