Heard, a 6-foot former Glacier Peak High star, appeared in 12 games for the Huskies. After a rocky start, falling out of the rotation in late November-early December, she had solid games in losses against Oregon and Utah.
Against the Ducks, Heard had five points and nine rebounds. In the overtime loss to the Utes, she had two key blocks at the end of regulation along with five points and three rebounds.
But Heard injured her left knee at practice on Jan. 9 following the game. Doctors wanted to wait until swelling subsided and Heard regained some strength in the area before undergoing the procedure. She’s the second UW player to undergo major surgery this season, joining G Kristi Kingma.
Freshmen teammates Talia Walton, Deborah Meeks and Beatrice Carta are also out this season due to knee injuries. Carta recently had another procedure on her knee, wearing a brace. The others aren’t wearing protective gear.
Washington (11-9, 3-7 Pac-12) is currently in Los Angeles for a two-game trip against UCLA (11-10, 6-4) and Southern California (12-9, 6-4). The Huskies lost to the Bruins on Thursday and play the Women of Troy on national television Sunday at 1 p.m.
