From the Liberty:

The New York Liberty announced today that point guard Brittany Boyd underwent an MRI at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) which confirmed a torn left Achilles tendon, an injury suffered during the fourth quarter of the Liberty’s game against the Minnesota Lynx on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. She will undergo repair Monday at HSS by team physician Dr. Jo Hannafin.

“Brittany suffered an unfortunate injury after working hard to come into this season prepared to lead our team from the point guard position,” said Liberty head coach Bill Laimbeer. “She had an excellent training camp, and was poised for a breakout season, as evidenced by the way she performed in our first two games. We are all hoping for a speedy recovery.”
