Sue Bird Injury Update From USA Basketball

USA and Storm guard Sue Bird injured her right knee during the USA’s Aug. 16 game against Japan. She underwent an MRI on Aug. 17, which showed a knee capsule sprain. She is listed as day-to-day.

“Obviously I felt a huge relief,” said Bird. “The hardest part is waiting and not knowing. So, to finally get the thumbs-up from the doc that everything was okay was incredibly relieving and exciting, and obviously I’m very happy.”
