The Phoenix Mercury has confirmed that Brittney Griner has returned to the court with the team after her release from detention just two months ago. The WNBA player had been held in Russia for allegedly smuggling "narcotic drugs".

The Mercury released images of Griner practicing, showing her wearing a black WNBA tank top, gold chain, matching black and purple shorts worn over dark purple leggings, and with a slight fade on the sides of her short hair.
