PHOENIX – On Wednesday, Mercury guard Diana Taurasi underwent a procedure on a disc protrusion in her back to alleviate symptoms of pain and muscle weakness.
Mercury General Manager Jim Pitman: “Diana began experiencing symptoms during offseason workouts, notified us, and in conjunction with our medical staff determined the right course of action. We have confidence that this procedure will not only get her back on the court but ensure she can get back to chasing around her toddler son, Leo, as well.”
She is expected to return in 10-12 weeks.
