WNBA Star Rookie Suffers Devastating Injury, Likely Ending Her Season, Leaving Fans Heartbroken

Share

The number two pick in the WNBA has had her rookie season cut short.

Los Angeles Sparks forward Cameron Brink tore the ACL in her left knee on Tuesday while driving to the basket during a game against the Connecticut Sun, according to ESPN.

Brink was not in contact with anyone at the time she fell. She was later helped off the court.

Once on the sidelines, however, the 6-foot-4 Brink was unable to walk at all, and had to be carried to the locker room.

Do you watch the WNBA?

Brink, 22, is expected to be lost for the season, according to the New York Post.

Brink is one of the four women picked for the 3×3 U.S. Olympic team that will compete in the Paris Olympics next month.

A replacement will need to be named for the Games, which begin July 26.

“You never think it will happen to you,” Brink wrote on social media.

“And despite all the hard work sometimes it does. This is hard to fathom but I know it will only make me stronger. I will not be derailed and I will continue to love this life — I’m not defined by basketball, but it is something that I love deeply and I will work everyday to get back to it,” she said.

“It’s not goodbye basketball it’s just a see you later. I’m always so thankful for your thoughts and prayers,” she said.

Brink’s fans posted their reaction to her injury.

ESPN noted that during her rookie season, Brink has averaged 8.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game — a stat that has her second in the league.

Brink won a national championship while playing for Stanford in 2021.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
