Sunday Swoopes Update

Today was the Storm's annual season ticket holder party at The Garage in Seattle, and before fans began getting autographs, playing pool and bowling with and against Storm players, Storm Head Coach Brian Agler offered the latest on Sheryl Swoopes' status after her scary injury in last night's win over Minnesota.

Swoopes spent the evening in the hospital but was scheduled to be released today after undergoing a battery of tests that confirmed that she suffered a concussion. After she went through over an hour's worth of testing last night, Agler visited her around 11:00 p.m. after the game and reported she recognized people, knew where she was and, more importantly, knew the Storm had held on for the win.

We should know a little more about Swoopes' availability going forward at the Storm's practice tomorrow morning.

Three season ticket holder fans went home praying for Sheryl's speedy recovery. We were so glad it was "only a concussion" and not further injury to her back or neck. She has been an inspiration and a savvy, wise player and is a real addition to the team. You Go, Girl! Blessings and prayers for healing -
