Sue has a partial tear of the labrum in her left hip and is awaiting test results on whether there is also a tear of the labrum in her right hip. Ouch. The injuries are from wear and tear and thus not the same type of injury suffered by Lauren Jackson earlier in the summer. LJ suffered an acute tear of the labrum in one of her hips. Sue became aware of the problem late last year. The choices are rest (which really won't heal the injury) or surgery with a 2-3 month recovery period. Either way, she won't be in Europe with Team USA. With her overseas commitment not starting until January and the Olympics next summer, it sounds like she's leaning towards surgery.
