Just got word from Mike Fratto out at Mystics practice that Marissa Coleman, the team’s top draft pick this year out of Maryland, suffered a high ankle sprain and will miss the next four to six weeks.
Bad timing for the Mystics, who have started the season 3-0. Coleman was coming off the bench so far this season but averaging 23 minutes, 12.7 points (second on the team) and 3 rebounds for the unbeaten team.
The Mystics play in Atlanta on Friday before returning home Saturday for a game against Phoenix.
Mike will be back later with a full story and blog update. Stay tuned.
