The 6-foot-8 center’s status was day-to-day, but her progress was not coming along as expected.  She leaves Wednesday to begin the rehabilitation in her home country.

Cambage went down in the second half of Tulsa’s double-overtime loss at Los Angeles on Aug. 25.

She played in 20 of Tulsa’s 30 games and was the team leader in scoring average at 16.3 ppg and pulled down 8.3 rebounds per contest.  She had a career-high 28 points against L.A. on Aug. 2.

Cambage was named WNBA Western Conference Player of the Week twice this season.
