The  UConn women's basketball team will have just nine available players for at least the next three games. 

The program announced Saturday afternoon that Dorka Juhász will miss at least three games after suffering a broken left thumb during UConn’s win over Texas last Monday. She will be unavailable for the Huskies' game against NC State on Sunday and next week's Phil Knight Legacy Tournament in Portland, Oregon.

UConn said Juhász is being regularly evaluated by the UConn sports medicine staff as she begins recovery.

Juhász's absence leaves UConn with just three true forwards: Aaliyah Edwards, Amari DeBerry and freshman Ayanna Patterson.

Juhász was averaging a team-high 10.0 rebounds per game (also tied with  Edwards) on top of 10.0 points, 3.5 assists, two steals and one block per game to start the year. The Hungary native was averaging 33.5 minutes per game, second only to Nika Mühl's 34.5 minutes per game.
