Wright return to practice; WNBA All-Star balloting begins

Posted by: Kent Youngblood under People Updated: June 3, 2014 - 12:38 PM

WNBA All-Star Game balloting – the most extensive voting program in league history -- will begin Tuesday at 1 p.m. There are five Lynx players on the official ballot: Seimone Augustus,Lindsay Whalen, Rebekkah Brunson, Janel McCarville and Maya Moore.

Fans can vote for their favorite player on WNBA.com, on the WNBA Center Court App and via Twitter and Facebook.

The All-Star game, televised on ESPN, will be held in Phoenix on July 19. Fans can vote for up to 10 players per day on WNBA.com. They can vote once per day on Facebook and Twitter. Balloting concludes July 2 and starters will be named July 8.

Meanwhile, here are some nuggets from today's practice:

--Augustus, who has been playing some heavy minutes, had a sore knee and was given the day off. But she expects to return to practice Wednesday.

--Guard Monica Wright returned to practice full-time for the first time since having a procedure on her left knee in late April. Coach Cheryl Reeve said there isn't much chance she will make her season debut in Seattle Friday, but wouldn't rule it out. It is clear the Lynx are going to be patient with Wright, just as they have been with Devereaux Peters, who has played light minutes in the two games since her return from a similar procedure on her left knee. 

Both players are going to take time to return to 100 percent. It could take weeks. But the Lynx are confident that they will have Wright, Peters and Rebekkah Brunson at 100 percent as they make their stretch run into the playoffs. 

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