Hurting time

Many WNBA teams are making final cuts in preparation for tomorrow’s deadline, and today’s cuts are brutal.

The Lynx waived Jacki Gemelos and Chucky Jeffery. That hurts me personally.

The Fever waived Jasmine Hassell.

The Mercury waived Erin Thorn but picked up Briana Gilbreath.

The Dream waived Sydney Carter and Cathrine Kraayeveld.

The Liberty have waived Shenneika Smith, and Phoenix has also let go of Nikki Greene and Ify Ibekwe.

The 11-player roster is straight up BULL. Teams are forced to cut good players that they’ll need if someone gets injured. The league needs to raise the cap to 13.
