Robinhood Stars shooter Monica Falkner will miss Sunday’s Round 3 ANZ Premiership match with the Splice Construction Magic due to a knee injury.
Falkner injured her left knee during the Stars' Round 1 clash with Te Wānanga o Raukawa Pulse and missed last weekend’s game against The Good Oil Tactix.
The injury is to the same knee Falkner suffered a ruptured ACL to in 2019, therefore extra caution is being taken around allowing her sufficient recovery time.
Falkner will be assessed on a week-to-week basis as she works towards a return to the court.
The undefeated Stars meet the Magic at 6.15pm this Sunday at Trustpower Arena in Tauranga, with live coverage on Sky Sport 3.
