She's somebody I'm used to going to war with."

The WNBA season was barely three weeks old, and already two of the league's biggest stars were out because of injuries. Sparks forward Candace Parker, the 2008 league most valuable player, had torn the meniscus in her right knee. Seattle Storm center Lauren Jackson, the reigning MVP, required surgery on her left hip. Parker won't be back for another month or so, and Jackson will be out even longer. Tough luck? No, more like the continuation of a trend. Players, coaches and trainers say injuries consistently plague the league, and they believe they know why: an off-season that really isn't one. Nearly three-quarters of the league's players also compete abroad, supplementing their relatively modest WNBA incomes with what typically are much larger payments from foreign teams that also might pick up their living expenses and shower them with gifts.

Sue Bird, the starting point guard for the top-ranked Connecticut women, has suffered a season-ending knee injury. Tests revealed that Bird suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during Monday's practice, said Dr. Jeffrey Anderson, Connecticut's director of sports medicine. She will have to undergo surgery but the date hasn't been set, he said. "We need to discuss the possibilities of surgery with Sue and her family before we continue any further," Anderson said.
