Alysha Clark's road to recovery, after suffering a Lisfranc injury of her right foot while playing in France, has begun. She underwent successful surgery, according to the Washington Mystics. The team tweeted a photo Friday of the 33-year-old, who appeared to be in good spirits as she held up a peace sign while on her hospital bed. In the post, the team said Clark had a successful surgery and wished her a speedy recovery.

The two-time WNBA champion signed with the Mystics in February but will sit out this upcoming season as she recovers. In a statement about Clark’s injury earlier this week, General Manager and Head Coach Mike Thibault said Clark was a major factor in the team’s planning this offseason.

“Throughout her rehab, Alysha will remain an integral part of our leadership group and her mentoring of our younger players will be crucial as we move ahead, Thibault added. “We look forward to her coming back healthy and being a factor in our success for several years to come.”
