Sophomore All-ACC guard Brittney Sykes received the diagnosis after an MRI was performed this week.
She was injured while doing a layup during the Orange's 59-53 NCAA Tournament victory over Chattanooga on March 22 in Lexington, Ky.
A date for surgery will be set following a reevaluation.
After the surgery, Sykes will begin a rehab program with Syracuse's medical, athletic training, and strength and conditioning staffs.
