Fever’s Shenise Johnson out for rest of season

Fever guard Shenise Johnson will undergo arthroscopic surgery Wednesday to repair meniscus damage in her left knee and miss the remainder of the 2019 WNBA season.

Johnson sustained a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the knee in July 2017 and missed the entire 2018 campaign during rehabilitation. She missed six games early this summer due to a left knee sprain and has averaged 4.9 points through 17 appearances in what is her seventh WNBA season.

A former All-American at the University of Miami, Johnson was the fifth overall pick of the 2012 WNBA Draft, by San Antonio. Indiana acquired her in a preseason trade in 2015 when she helped the Fever reach the WNBA Finals.
