ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ Orlando Miracle guard Elaine Powell has undergone successful reconstructive knee surgery.

The surgery, performed by team physician Dr. Janet Robison, was done to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in Powell's left knee. Powell suffered the injury July 19 against the Detroit Shock.

The team on Thursday said Powell is expected to begin rehabilitation immediately and will miss the entire playoffs.

In 20 games this season, Powell averaged 3.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists for the Miracle.
