“The Mercury fully support Brittney and we will continue to work together on a timeline for her return,” the team said in a statement.
The WNBA says Brittney Griner and her Phoenix Mercury teammates were confronted by a “provocateur” at a Dallas airport on Saturday.
Vanessa Nygaard called out LA spectators after Griner's first game since being jailed in Russia.
The WNBA star made a surprise public appearance at Saturday's 54th NAACP Image Awards.
The 32-year-old’s re-signing comes roughly three months after she returned home from Russia following a dramatic prisoner exchange.
But Russia strongly warned Washington against publicizing the issue.
The Phoenix Mercury star was ordered to stand Friday and could face 10 years in prison if convicted on charges of large-scale transportation of drugs.
The NBA all-star created an online petition pushing President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to get Griner back to the U.S.
Chicago Sky won against the Phoenix Mercury 80-74, marking the team's first title in franchise history.
