Diana Taurasi was injured yesterday as she is contemplating taking a year off from the WNBA next summer. I don’t blame her at all:
“Physically, it’s getting to be a problem,” said Taurasi, who has won two Olympic gold medals. “You’re seeing it around the league. You see it a lot where [players] are injured and getting hurt and making it difficult to play year-round. If you think about it, no other professional sport does it.”
Seattle’s Sue Bird played only two minutes of Sunday’s game against Tulsa before leaving with a lower back injury. Will she return? Yikes.
