Augustus update: Lynx forward not yet ruled out to face Dream

 

 

Minnesota Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve did not rule out forward Seimone Augustus playing against the Atlanta Dream on Thursday at the Xcel Energy Center.

Augustus was not at practice Wednesday or Tuesday. She missed the team’s most recent game, a Sunday win over the Seattle Storm, for “personal reasons.”

Reeve has said the team would handle the situation “day by day.”

Augustus is averaging 11.5 points and a career-high 3.9 assists this season.

Guard Jia Perkins started in her place Sunday and played a season-high 36 minutes. 

Augustus remains away from Lynx for personal reasons

 

 

The Minnesota Lynx do not know when to expect forward Seimone Augustus back with the team.

Augustus did not practice with the Lynx on Tuesday. She missed Sunday’s win over the Seattle Storm because of “personal reasons.”

Coach Cheryl Reeve said she learned Saturday that Augustus would be stepping away from the team. Reeve said after practice Tuesday that she hadn’t spoken with Augustus yet that day. The Lynx play host to the Atlanta Dream at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Xcel Energy Center.

The Lynx, Reeve said, intend to take the situation “day by day.”

Reeve would not say whether Augustus was in Minnesota. She joked that the forward, in her 12th season with the team, was “sulking” about not being moved at the WNBA’s trade deadline, which was Monday.

The coach emphasized the absence was not a suspension.

When asked whether Augustus’ teammates knew why she was absent, Reeve did not answer.

“When somebody says it’s for personal reasons, what we expect is that you guys respect it’s personal,” she said. “We ask you guys respect that. Nobody’s going to get scooped with anything. Let’s just respect the situation, please.”

Augustus is averaging 11.5 points and a career-high 3.9 assists this season.

Guard Jia Perkins, who started in Augustus’ place Sunday, played with the starting rotation during practice.
