Sparks G Candice Wiggins has left knee surgery

LOS ANGELES (AP) Sparks reserve guard Candice Wiggins has undergone surgery on her left knee.

The team said Monday that she had her meniscus repaired and will be out four to six weeks.

Wiggins has played in just one game so far this season, averaging no points and one assist.

She signed with the Sparks during the offseason. She has averaged double-figure scoring in four of her previous six WNBA seasons and helped Minnesota win the 2011 championship.

The second-place Sparks play at Atlanta on Tuesday.
