Griner (ankle, knee) will make her return during Saturday’s tilt against the Storm, Brendon Kleen of SummittHoops.com reports.
Griner, who’s missed the past eight contests after suffering a left knee bone bruise and right ankle sprain in mid-July, will return to the court Saturday. It’s possible she’ll be on a minutes restriction, as it wouldn’t be surprising if the Mercury played it safe with their star big. On the season, she’s posting an impressive 22.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game. With her return, reserve center Cayla George will likely return to her usual role.
