Augustus out indefinitely after knee surgery

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Lynx guard Seimone Augustus will be out indefinitely following arthroscopic knee surgery.

The Lynx announced Augustus had the procedure Thursday at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Augustus, 35, is the franchise leader in games played, points scored and field goals made after being selected with the first pick in the 2006 draft.

The eight-time All-Star has been held out of the first two games for a new-look Lynx team following the retirement of guard Lindsay Whalen and a leave of absence for forward Maya Moore .

Another mainstay of the team's four WNBA titles from 2011 to '17, forward Rebekkah Brunson, has been sidelined by a concussion from late last season and is not currently on the roster.
