Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner underwent an outpatient procedure to correct a retinal issue and will be a game-time decision for Game 3 of the WNBA Finals, the team announced Thursday.
Griner took two blows to the face in Game 2 against the Chicago Sky and suffered a scratched eyelid, chipped tooth and bloodied lip.
Griner, who finished the game with 19 points and four blocks, is under the observation of Mercury and Suns team ophthalmologist Dr. Jay Schwartz in Phoenix. She will be re-evaluated Friday morning and then join the team in Chicago.
The Mercury have a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five series. Game 3 is Friday night at the University of Illinois-Chicago. The Sky won't play at their regular home, the Allstate Arena, because of a previously scheduled Garth Brooks concert.
