Silver Ferns midcourter Mila Reuelu-Buchanan will miss the remainder of the ANZ Premiership and any netball in 2024 with injury.

Scans confirmed the Northern Stars playmaker suffered an ACL rupture during Monday's match against the Waikato-BOP Magic and will undergo surgery and work towards a return to the netball court in 2025.

There is now a large list of players from all franchises with injuries creating issues.

Stars coach Kiri Wills has Amorangi Malesala out with an ankle injury and Emma Thompson with concussion as she tries to get her side winning its first game of the season.

Wills has called on former Stars player and Silver Ferns captain Gina Crampton who was meant to be taking the year off from the sport as reinforcement and will continue to as long as Crampton is available.

Reuelu-Buchanan also suffered a medial meniscus tear in her left knee and will miss the international season later this year.
