Arlington, TX - Dallas Wings second-year forward Maddy Siegrist underwent successful surgery on her broken left index finger yesterday. Recovery is expected to take approximately eight weeks with an estimated return following the Olympic break.

Renowned hand specialist Dr. Michelle Carlson of New York's Hospital for Special Surgery performed an open reduction and internal fixation procedure.

Siegrist suffered the injury in the first quarter of Monday night's game at the Minnesota Lynx. She went on to score a team-high 17 points to go along with seven rebounds.

Siegrist is in the midst of a breakout season for the Wings, averaging 14.6 points and 4.2 rebounds while starting 11 of 13 games. Her increase in scoring average from last season is tops among all WNBA players, as she averaged 3.7 points during her rookie season in 2023 for a 10.9 points per game increase. The Most Improved Player candidate also leads the WNBA in highest increase in scoring ranking as she listed 89th in 2023 and is currently 23rd for a 66-spot leap.
