Former UConn star Asjha Jones tears her Achilles

Former UConn star Asjha Jones' status with the Connecticut Sun for the 2014 WNBA was up in the air when she headed overseas to play in Russia.

Well, the situation is suddenly cleared up but with the worst possible outcome as the team confirmed that Jones tore her left Achilles' tendon and is headed back to the U.S. to have surgery. She will not be able to play during the 2014 season as she rehabilitates the injury.

News of Jones' injury while playing for Spartak was first reported by the FIBA Europe site.

Jones is quoted in the report saying "unfortunately because of this setback I will now not be able to be here for the rest of the season.

"However, I feel I have become a member of the Spartak tradition and I wish everybody and especially my teammates all the best."

Jones averaged 11.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2 steals and 0.8 blocked shots in five games with Spartak.

Jones ranks second all-time in Connecticut Sun history in the following categories
Games Played 271
Points 3,336
Made Field Goals 1,398
Field Goal Attempts 3,063
Rebounds 1,447
Offensive Rebounds 506
Defensive Rebounds 941
