Alana Beard to miss rest of season

WASHINGTON -- Washington Mystics guard Alana Beard's foot injury will keep her out for the rest of the season.

Beard, who hasn't played in the WNBA since 2009, sprained her left foot during training camp. The Mystics said Wednesday that she re-aggravated the injury while practicing with the team last week.

The four-time All-Star missed all of last season after having surgery on her left ankle.

Beard has averaged 16.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.9 steals since entering the league in 2004.
