Sky for­ward Jan­tel Laven­der will miss the sea­son af­ter un­der­go­ing surgery on her left foot, the team an­nounced Tues­day.

Laven­der, who is in the fi­nal year of her con­tract, had the same surgery in Au­gust of last year. She’ll still be paid her full salary of $117,000 this sea­son.

This is a huge loss for the Sky, who will miss Laven­der’s on-court pres­ence and vet­eran lead­er­ship.

She av­er­aged 10 points and 6.9 re­bounds and started 22 of 23 games last sea­son.

The news comes af­ter the Sky lost backup point guard Syd­ney Col­son, who tested pos­i­tive for the coro­n­avirus. On Mon­day, the team signed former Rider University star Stella John­son to re­place her.
