UConn women’s basketball forward Dorka Juhász suffers broken thumb

The injury struggles continue for the UConn women’s basketball team.

Graduate forward Dorka Juhász will miss at least three games after breaking her left thumb in the No. 5 Huskies’ win over No. 3 Texas on Monday, the program announced Saturday.

This is the fourth injury for UConn already this season. Superstar guard Paige Bueckers tore the ACL in her left knee in early August, freshman forward Ice Brady suffered a dislocated patella in her right knee in October and Caroline Ducharme has been dealing with neck stiffness.

Juhász was averaging 10 points, 10 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 steals per game through two contests so far this season. Her 2021-22 campaign was cut short after suffering a broken left wrist in the Elite Eight against NC State.

UConn will be without Juhász for Sunday’s rematch against No. 10 NC State at the XL Center and the Phil Knight Legacy tournament in Portland. The Huskies will have just eight healthy players for those games as Ducharme is still working her way back and will likely play limited minutes.

With Juhász’s injury, the Huskies are left with Aaliyah Edwards, Aubrey Griffin, Ayanna Patterson and Amari DeBerry as their options down low.
