Temporarily Out of Service.

The Mystics announced today that Marissa Coleman has suffered a high ankle sprain and is expected to be out for the next 4 to 6 weeks.

Meanwhile, SF Kristen Mann will step in for Marissa. Kristen, who played with the team for most of training camp, was signed today by GM Angela Taylor.

In order to make room for Kristen, the Mystics were forced to waive rookie post player Josephine Owino.

Obviously Marissa's injury is a very disappointing development for Riss, for the Mystics and for the fans. But despite Marissa's being temporarily out of service, the BasketCases remain hopeful for the team's prospects. Fortunately, this year's Mystics are more of an ensemble cast than a single-star show. We know it's a cliche, but this is an opportunity for the rest of her teammates to "step up" while Marissa is healing. We're pretty confident that if any group of players is capable of doing just that, the members of this team are.

Hope Marissa has a speedy and FULL recovery!

On another note, great news out of college park today! Thrilled to see we're getting another great recruiter & solid coach.

Hope that Marissa recovers soon and that this hamper her too much in the race for Rookie of the Year honors.

I wonder if this will keep her from participating in All-Star festivities. It's scheduled around the time she ought to be heeled, but would the Mystics want her first activity to be against the Western Conference all-Stars?
