Shoulder
November 9, 2018
January underwent offseason surgery on her right shoulder but is expected to be ready for the 2019 season, Jeff Metcalfe of The Arizona Republic reports.
ANALYSIS
January apparently suffered the initial injury during training camp last season and played the entire 2018 campaign with the injury. She did average a nine-year low in scoring at seven points per game last season, so she might be in store for a resurgent 2019 season now that her shoulder will be better off.
