Phoenix has updated the status of Brittney Griner.

Ron Hoskins - NBAE

Brittney Griner of the Phoenix Mercury is expected to miss 3-4 weeks after bruising a bone in her left knee, and spraining her right ankle Friday night against Minnesota, the team announced.

Griner landed awkwardly last night with 8:49 remaining in the game. The loss is a big one for the Mercury, as Griner is arguably having her best season in her career, and leading the WNBA in points per game and blocks.

The team will evaluate her for the next few weeks and update her status when the time is appropriate.
