LOS ANGELES -- Point guard Loree Moore is leaving the Los Angeles Sparks because of medical reasons after never playing a minute for them.

The team didn't disclose the cause of Moore's health issues when making the announcement Wednesday.

Moore joined the Sparks in February after playing with the New York Liberty from 2005-09. She averaged 6.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 155 regular-season games. Moore played in Russia during the current offseason.

Moore was named to the WNBA's All-Defensive team in 2007, and helped the Liberty reach the 2008 Eastern Conference semifinals.
