Any solid information on the injury status of the following?

Steph Talbot - DNP v. Belgium; injured after 11 minutes of play v. China; DNP v Puerto Rico.

Skyler Diggins-Smith - 2 min. v. Nigeria; DNP v. Japan and reportedly was held out due to injury in practice; 6 minutes v. France with 0/2 shooting.

Diana Taurasi - Averaged 22 min., 10.5 points on 7/12 shooting v. Nigeria and Japan; injured wrist against France and only played 11 minutes, attempted only 1 shot after injury (missed 3-pointer).

If no solid information, juicy rumors or idle speculation would be perfectly acceptable.

Nothing solid about Talbot. The Opals have been super secretive about her the whole way through, but from the way she exited game 2 after the re-injury I would be shocked if she played.

For the Opals to have any chance, they need Talbot to play. She is a good WNBA level defender with some size, and. on occasion, can get hot from the arc. Without her, a shaky defense takes big step back, with too many minutes for the very slow footed O'Hea.

I agree. She's a very important piece - especially for the current, Cambage-less version of us.

Stranger things have happened of course, and there are 2 teams in a contest, but on our side I think this is as badly equipped to beat the US as we have been since the early 90's.

Here's hoping you're right and it plays out that way.

Oh no I hadn't heard about Talbot. Between her injury and the big 3 being run into the ground, might end up being a ROUGH olympics for the Storm.

So far basically Breanna Stewart is being Breanna Stewart.

Defense feels more active overall. Will be interesting to see if that continues with some bench players in.

Stewie being incredible again.

Stewie and BG are doing well defensively.

Isn't this Diana's 3rd foul? Dawn why is she in?

Kara not wanting to say that Dawn doesn’t trust anyone. Literally saying anything but.

Hadn’t seen one of those DT fouls in a while. Started to feel too weird without them.

This 2nd unit is so bad.

Dawn getting ready to put in Aja and Stewie like 6'9'' isn't on this team. Don't bring her back.

Can someone explain to me what the logic is in having the play run through Gray or Loyd while keeping Bird in at the same time... Bird is leading the team in minutes wtf?

ETA: Atkins sighting! And still Bird is in...?

Skylar comes in and promptly gives up a blow by, then on ensuing possession dribbles it off her feet and over the baseline on a forced drive.

Stewie with 20 at the break.

Hope AW goes off in the 2nd half en route to a 30-pt romp.

Kind feel bad for Alanna Smith. You barely play all WNBA season. But you make it to the Olympics and get to show out for your nation. But you get Sandy again. Oof. Laughing

How many minutes has she played the whole Olympics? She was bound to be rusty and need to adjustment. Defense has been pretty good so far.
