SEATTLE — Former WNBA MVP Lauren Jackson will miss the 2015 season with the Seattle Storm after undergoing knee surgery.

The Storm made the expected announcement on Tuesday. It will be the third straight season that Jackson doesn't play a game for the Storm.

"Lauren's health and recovery remains the top priority as we continue the dialogue regarding her future in Seattle," Seattle general manager Alisha Valavanis said.

Seattle has also spent the past four seasons without Jackson full-time. Once the most dominant player in the league, Jackson has not played more than 13 games for Seattle since 2010 and didn't suit up for the Storm in 2013 or '14, spending most of her time back in Australia dealing with injuries.
