From the Fever:

Indiana 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.
