UT press release:
Tennessee women’s basketball head coach Kellie Harper shared on Thursday that senior center Tamari Key will miss the remainder of the 2022-23 season after physicians discovered blood clots in her lungs during testing.
Key, who missed her first-ever game as a Lady Vol vs. Chattanooga on Tuesday night, will continue to receive care under the guidance of the University of Tennessee Medical Center and Tennessee Athletics team physicians. She is expected to make a full recovery.
“My sole concern right now is that Tamari continues to get the medical care and guidance she needs and begins the gradual process of healing and returning to full strength. This is much bigger than basketball. We are so grateful that this medical condition was caught. Our entire program will be right beside Tamari during this process and welcomes prayers and positive thoughts from Lady Vol Nation and beyond.”
