Mystics' Currie, Harding are All-Stars
NEW YORK -- Monique Currie and Lindsey Harding have replaced injured stars Lauren Jackson and Sancho Lyttle on the WNBA All-Star roster for Saturday's game against the U.S. national team.
Currie and Harding give the Mystics three players in the game, joining teammate Crystal Langhorne. San Antonio leads with four players on the WNBA All-Star team. Currie and Harding are both averaging career highs in scoring at 14.8 and 13.2 points.
Seattle's Jackson, second in the league in scoring (21.4) and seventh in rebounding (9.0) and Atlanta's Lyttle, second in rebounding (10.6) are both recovering from concussions sustained last Saturday, and each missed her team's last game this week before the break.
