Sharapova returned from a 15-month doping ban in April, but skipped the entire grass-court season due to injury.
Sharapova, whose ranking has fallen to 171 in the world, received a wild card into the premier level tournament in Stanford, where she was tested Monday by the 80th-ranked Brady.
"Unfortunately, I have to withdraw from today's match", the five-time Grand Slam champion said.
Sharapova suffered the injury while playing in her first United States match in more than two years, defeating American Jennifer Brady 6-1, 4-6, 6-0 in her Monday opener at Stanford.

"I had a bit of a letdown but that's the way it is", Sharapova said.

She had not played in the USA since March of 2015 due in part to a 15-month doping suspension for the use of meldonium. After yesterday's scan, the doctor has recommended I don't risk further injury.
