Strained hip flexor sidelines Taurasi
Thursday, May 31, 2012
PHOENIX (AP) -- Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi is out indefinitely with a strained left hip flexor.
Taurasi was injured during training camp and missed the Mercury's season opener in Minnesota. The 2009 WNBA MVP reported just seven days before the opener after playing a full season for Turkey in the Eurolege and training camp with USA Basketball.
She had 18 points in Phoenix's loss to Los Angeles in its home opener, but did not travel with the team for Thursday night's game against Atlanta.
Taurasi is listed as day-to-day.
