Wings forward Sabally has shoulder procedure after getting hurt with Germany in Olympic qualifier

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas Wings forward Satou Sabally had what the team called a shoulder procedure after she got hurt playing for Germany in an Olympic qualifying tournament earlier this month.

The Wings didn't elaborate on what procedure she had Tuesday, and said no timeline had been set for her return. The team said the 25-year-old Sabally is expected to make a full recovery.

Sabally, the No. 2 overall pick out of Oregon in 2020, last season had career-best averages of 18.6 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game. The 6-foot-4 forward set a franchise record with seven consecutive double-doubles on the way to the fifth-most in the WNBA at 14.

During the qualifying tournament in Brazil, Germany earned a spot in the 2024 Olympic Games, making the team's first time to qualify for the Olympics.

The Wings open their season May 15 at home against the Chicago Sky. The Paris Olympics begin July 26.
