Brittney Griner isn’t appearing at Team USA’s minicamp this week, but one of her prominent teammates is speaking out.
Diana Taurasi, who hopes to play again for the Phoenix Mercury with Griner, said her longtime teammate is in good spirits.
“Brittney Griner texted her good friend Diana Taurasi on Tuesday asking how the USA Basketball training camp was going.
Griner chose to skip the camp in Minnesota so she can be with her wife and recover from her time in a Russian jail,” the AP reports.
Good for Griner.
“Love that boundary for her,’ one fan wrote.
“she definitely crossed my mind the other day i can’t imagine,” another fan wrote.
“whatever she needs just grateful she’s home,” one fan added.
Hopefully, we’ll see Taurasi and Griner playing again at some point in the future.
