Agent: Griner cut but OK in knife attack in China

WNBA star Brittney Griner was cut on the elbow by a man in a knife attack in China but didn't need to go to the hospital, her agent told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Agent Lindsay Kagawa Colas said Griner sustained a small cut as her team was boarding a bus after practice Monday in what she called a random attack. Colas said the 6-foot-8 player was wearing a winter coat and that the knife barely cut her skin. Griner didn't require stitches.

The agent said the man also stabbed one of Griner's teammates, but that she was wearing two jackets and the knife didn't go through.

Colas said the man was yelling as he chased the players onto the bus. She said he left the scene, then returned covered in blood and was apprehended by Chinese authorities. It was not immediately clear in which city this happened.

Griner plays in the WNBA with the Phoenix Mercury. This is her second season in China and first with the Beijing Great Wall. The team was preparing for a road game against Liaoning Hengye.

Griner, who led Baylor to a 40-0 season and the 2012 NCAA title, came out as a lesbian in 2013 after her senior season. She was the No. 1 pick by the Mercury in the 2013 draft.
