The Minnesota Lynx announced on Friday that Aerial Powers underwent successful surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in her right thumb.

The surgery was performed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and is expected to keep Powers sidelined for eight to 10 weeks.

The injury happened during an 80-64 victory over the Los Angeles Sparks on Saturday.

A timeline for her return to activity will be established at a later date, according to the team.
