Robinson Returns to Practice

Storm center Ashley Robinson returned to practice Monday after rolling her right ankle last Thursday and missing Saturday's win over Minnesota. She was on the floor for the brief live action we saw at the end of practice.

"I feel fine," said Robinson. "A little achy, but it's normal. It's still a little bit (swollen), but it's under control and it goes down a lot every day."

Robinson and the Storm's training staff have been working hard to get her ankle ready to go over the last few days.

"Ice, stim treatment," she said. "Compression boot, exercises for it - I'm trying a little bit of everything."

The Storm should have Robinson available for tomorrow's game in Sacramento (7:00 p.m., 1150 AM KKNW).

Any word on O'Neill's status? Will she get another 7 day or go back to the practice squad?

I would expect the Storm to sign her to a second seven-day contract.

So glad to see Ashley well again! I love watching her play, her defense has really improved this year. I'm really looking forward to watching her get more minutes on the court!

Glad you are doing better Ashley. I don't get to watch you much since most games are on NBA. We don't get it on U-verse cable. I have been following Ashley's career since high school in Grand Prairie. She was a mentor at the school where I taught. She was so good with the kids. I remember her bending her head to come in the front door. Sweet Girl!!
