Duke's Kyra Lambert to miss another season after reinjuring knee

DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke says point guard Kyra Lambert will miss a second straight season with a knee injury.

Lambert announced the injury Monday, saying she reinjured her left knee and will have surgery next month to repair a meniscal tear and to reconstruct the ACL.

Lambert missed last season after initially injuring the knee in a win over Hampton during the first round of the 2017 NCAA tournament. She was hurt again during practice last season, leading to a second surgery in February.

Team spokesman Lindy Brown said Lambert was still rehabbing that injury and had not been cleared for contact when she hurt the knee for a third time.

Coach Joanne P. McCallie said Lambert "cannot catch a break."
