Mercury's Taylor will miss 2012 season

Phoenix Mercury forward Penny Taylor will miss the 2012 WNBA season after tearing her left ACL in a March 29 Euroleague game. Taylor will need surgery and then begin the rehabilitation process.

"We are devastated by the news of Penny's injury," President and COO of the Mercury Amber Cox said. "We plan to do everything possible to aide in Penny's rehabilitation and look forward to her full recovery and continuing her career with the Phoenix Mercury."

Taylor is a 10-year WNBA veteran and has played seven seasons with the Mercury making her the second longest tenured player in franchise history behind Diana Taurasi.

Taylor was also expected to team up with Seattle Storm center Lauren Jackson on the Australian national team at the 2012 London Olympics, but will be unable to participate due to her knee injury.
