Augustus probable for Friday's game

Well, it’s almost official.

Seimone Augustus, who missed the last eight games with knee bursitis, took full part in Thursday’s practice and is probable for Friday’s game with San Antonio at Target Center.

“I practiced today, it felt good,” Augustus said. “So we’ll see what happens tomorrow at shootaround.”

With Rebekkah Brunson having her season debut Tuesday, that means today’s practice was the first time coach Cheryl Reeve had her complete starting five on the floor together. She said at one point she almost did a double-take, like she couldn’t believe this day had finally come.

“It’s kind of cool,” Reeve said.

Guess so. With Augustus returning, it will be that much harder for teams to account for all of Minnesota’s weapons. Moore, averaging nearly 30 points per game in July, has gone to another level, and Lindsay Whalen is coming off a season-high 26 points.

Augustus’ return will allow Reeve to put Monica Wright back into a reserve role, which should boost a bench still struggling to score; Lynx reserves managed just eight of the team’s 112 points Tuesday.

That’s about it for now. Have a good day.
