Delle Donne to miss All-Star game with concussion

 

Forward Elena Delle Donne will miss the WNBA All-Star game today ( 12:30 p.m., ABC) because of a concussion. The No. 2 pick in the draft was injured in the Chicago Sky’s loss to Washington on Wednesday when she was going for a loose ball with a minute left in the third quarter. Delle Donne is the first rookie to lead the All-Star voting and will be replaced on the Eastern Conference roster by Atlanta’s Erika de Souza. Delle Donne, whos averages 18.2 points for third-best in the WNBA, joins top draft pick Brittney Griner (sprained left knee) on the sideline for the league’s showcase game at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. – AP
