|Breanna Stewart is returning to the U.S. from China to rehab a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in her right knee.
The Seattle Storm star injured the knee last week while playing for Shanghai in the Chinese basketball league. She won't require surgery and is flying back Friday to strengthen the knee.
"It's fine. It's nothing major Cheap Nike Air Max 97 Summit White , but it's still an issue I guess," Stewart said in a phone interview with The Associated Press on Sunday night from Shanghai. "It's perfect timing at least. You don't ever want to get injured. I had an MRI and it showed the PCL injury. The plan right now is to go back to the U.S. and do rehab and then come back for the playoffs."
Her Chinese team finished second and the league's playoffs begin in early February. They are on break until the playoffs begin.
"We are in close communication with Breanna and the medical team overseeing her rehab," Seattle Storm president and general manager Alisha Valavanis said. "Breanna has our ongoing support as she recovers."
Stewart has been on the go since her senior season at UConn last year. She helped the Huskies win a fourth consecutive title last April and then went first in the WNBA draft to Seattle. She was the league's rookie of the year and also helped the U.S. win a sixth consecutive gold medal at the Olympics in August.
The three-time AP women's basketball Player of the Year headed to China soon after the Storm were eliminated from the playoffs.
"I haven't had any break," Stewart said. "Maybe it's a sign my body's saying I'm a little tired. So now a break is coming. It was supposed to be coming after the China playoffs finished."
Stewart said she's never really been injured before in her career.
"I rolled my ankle before but nothing with the knees Cheap Men's Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Essential Black White , knock on wood," she said. "Fortunately I won't need surgery, I just need to get stronger and get it fixed."
Before the injury, which happened on Jan. 7 Cheap Air Max 96 XX Men's Nike Triple Black Anthracite , Stewart was enjoying her first season in China on and off the court. She was averaging 31.4 points and 10.1 rebounds. She's been filming a web-based reality series that will debut on her Facebook page this week.
"It's been great. Shanghai is such an Americanized city and so welcoming to foreigners," she said. "It's been great getting to know the team and the coaching staff and players. Time really has flown by as I've been here for nearly four months and it doesn't feel like it's been that long."
Stewart said she has learned a few Chinese words and has been provided a translator by the team to help her.
"It's great to have the translator, but when I'm out doing stuff I'm sometimes on my own," she said. "It's nice sometimes people recognize me when I'm around campus where the facilities are. I've even had people come up to me and say they went to UConn. Talk about a small world."
Speaking of the Huskies Cheap Men's Nike Air Max 360 All Black , Stewart said she's been following from afar. She wasn't able to watch their record-breaking 91st consecutive win on Saturday as it was 4 a.m. in China when UConn played.
"I woke up and checked the box scores as I wasn't able to stay up," she said. "I had confidence they had that one and they were going to be able to take care of business."
Stewart said she watched the Baylor game and also was Facetiming with her mom when the Huskies played Notre Dame. Her mom was watching the TV at home and Stewart was watching through the phone.
"I'm really proud of them and happy for them," the four-time NCAA most outstanding player said. "To see them doing what everyone thought they wouldn't be doing is special. Everyone thought that they'd struggle early on."
She's proud to be linked with the streak, having helped the team win the first 75 games of their current run. As far as when it will end Cheap Supreme X Nike Air Max 98 Black White , she has no idea.
"The way they are playing right now, I wouldn't bet against them," she said. "A 150- or 200-game winning streak would be crazy."
