LJ Resumes Training

After taking the last month and a half off following the conclusion of the Storm's season, Lauren Jackson is back on the court preparing to head to Russia to play for Spartak Moscow, Australian newspaper The Age reports.

There's also word straight from the source on Jackson's plans for next season.

"I'll just be back in Seattle probably," she told the paper. "What I want to do is get a couple of weeks off and be able to tour with the Australian team.

"I don't think it will be a problem if I go back there and commit to the Storm and then also commit to the Opals."

- Some Storm players have already headed overseas, including wing Katie Gearlds. She's playing in Slovakia with New York center Janel McCarville, who is keeping a blog that occasionally features Gearlds.

- The WNBA has scheduled its annual Draft Lottery for next Tuesday. Minnesota and L.A. are the favorites to earn the top overall pick, followed by Houston, Chicago and Washington.
