The Team Bath attacker suffered an injury to her Achilles during her side's 3rd/4th place play-off against Hertfordshire Mavericks and scans have confirmed the news that she will not be fit to lead England in Scotland this summer.
Cookey, 29, having been a surprise inclusion in the squad as a 17-year-old, missed the chance to compete at the 2002 Commonwealth Games because of a knee injury before making her senior debut in 2004 against Australia.
She has won Commonwealth bronze medals in 2006 and 2010.
