Griner to miss All-Star game with knee injury
Brittney Griner will miss Saturday's WNBA All-Star game while recovering from a sprained left knee she suffered earlier this month.
UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- Brittney Griner will miss Saturday's WNBA All-Star game while recovering from a sprained left knee she suffered earlier this month.
The rookie center sat out Phoenix's last five games and will be replaced on the Western Conference roster by Seattle's Tina Thompson, who announced earlier this season that she would retire after the year. This will be her ninth All-Star appearance -- the most ever.
Griner may be joined on the sidelines this weekend by Chicago's Elena Delle Donne.
The No. 2 pick in the draft this past April suffered a concussion Wednesday and is questionable to play Saturday. Delle Donne was the first rookie to lead the All-Star voting.
