Guards both sidelined with foot injuries

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Lynx placed guards Susan King
Borchardt and Nuria Martinez on the injured list Friday, reducing
their active roster to the required 11 for the beginning of the
regular season.

King Borchardt, a rookie free agent from Stanford, played high
school ball at Holy Angels in Richfield, Minn. She and Martinez each have
an injury to their left foot, the team said. They must stay on the
injured list for at least three games.

The rest of the roster: forwards Svetlana Abrosimova, Jacqueline
Batteast, Amanda Lassiter, Stacey Lovelace, Kristen Mann, Nicole
Ohlde and Tamika Williams; center Vanessa Hayden; and guards Kristi
Harrower, Amber Jacobs and Katie Smith.

The Lynx begin the regular season Sunday at Houston.
