Brittney Griner attends Phoenix Open, 2nd public appearance since return home

1 Min Read

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — WNBA star Brittney Griner attended the WM Phoenix Open golf tournament Saturday in what is believed to be her second public appearance since her release from a Russian prison.

Griner was part of a crowd of about 200,000 fans at the tournament, watching the action from the stadium 16th hole.

Last month in her first appearance, Griner was at the Martin Luther King Jr. march in downtown Phoenix.

Griner is skipping the USA Basketball training camp in Minnesota so she can be with her wife and continue to recover. In a dramatic high-level prisoner exchange in December, Griner was brought back to the United States after almost 10 months’ detention.

Griner has said she’ll play for the Phoenix Mercury again this season, although she’s still an unsigned free agent. She hasn’t talked about her international future and potentially playing in the Olympics next year in Paris.
