Breanna Stewart flying home from China to rehab injured knee

NEW YORK (AP) 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, 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."
