Sparks Guard Sharnee Zoll Sustains Torn ACL in Left Knee

Zoll Will Miss Remainder of 2012 WNBA Season With Injury

The Los Angeles Sparks announced today that Sharnee Zoll will miss the remainder of the 2012 season due to a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) in her left knee.

"It's unfortunate that Sharnee won't be able to play this season," Sparks Vice President and General Manager Penny Toler said. "Up until her injury, she was playing really well. We look forward to seeing what she can do next season."

Zoll averaged 7 assists in her two preseason games with the Sparks. Against the Japan National Team, Zoll notched 10 points, 6 assists and 3 rebounds in just 19 minutes of play.

The Sparks have started the season 2-0 with away and home wins against the Seattle Storm. They take on the defending champion Minnesota Lynx on May 24 at 5:00PM Pacific. After playing in Phoenix on Friday, the Sparks will return home on Tuesday, May 29 to take on the Tulsa Shock at 7:30PM at STAPLES Center.
