Some consider WNBA star Brittney Griner to be the Tom Brady of her own league. Now that she has been detained in Russia for several months, tension for the staff’s friends and family seems to be mounting minute by minute for her well-being. However, her detention in Russia has received an important update.
According to an Associated Press report via ESPN, Brittney Griner’s detention in Russia while she awaits her long-standing trail will be extended by up to 30 days starting May 19. That could keep one of America’s leading female athletes from crossing home borders for long.

When will Brittney Griner return?
“WNBA star Brittney Griner’s attorney said Friday her pre-trial detention in Russia had been extended by a month.
Griner’s attorney, Alexander Boikov, told The Associated Press he believed the relatively brief extension of the detention indicated the case would soon go to trial.”
For those who don’t know, Brittney Griner’s sentence was previously extended by two months by a court decision. But with the looming fear that the trail will be delayed by at least a year, or maybe even worse, 18 months before she can even commit to returning home. Griner was first arrested at Moscow airport in mid-February for possession of cartridges containing cannabis-derived oil in her luggage, which equates to up to 10 years in prison in Russia.
Given that this is just an update, basketball fans around the world want Griner to return home and probably onto the basketball court. In addition, the heart goes out to the same player when separated from family and friends in a foreign country whose legal terms with the United States of America could be deteriorating at any minute. Hopefully she comes back sooner rather than later.
That being said, with all eyes on the ongoing men’s NBA semifinal series, people shouldn’t take Griner’s affair much more seriously. Especially with the lag in their track that occurs after every 10 day gap.
