NEWS: @beckyhammon sidelined with broken finger. More info on length of time will be announced. @poundingtherock @swishappeal— Dr. Dre (@AndreaDuke15) May 20, 2013
The press release from the San Antonio Silver Stars for this one was pretty simple:
San Antonio Silver Stars guard Becky Hammon sustained a broken middle finger on her right hand during training camp on Saturday. A timeline for her return will be established following further evaluation this week.
And really, no matter how long Hammon is out as a result, the significance of this one is pretty simple as well: the Silver Stars have had a rough offseason and could be headed for a tough regular season without Hammon for some period of time and forward Sophia Young out with a previously reported injury.
Or if you prefer a more positive spin, this could be a development year with some opportunities for their young talent to play.
