WNBA Star Brittney Griner Got Attacked in China by a Man With a Knife

TIME

U.S. basketball player Brittney Griner was lightly injured in Shenyang, China on Monday after a knife-wielding man attacked her and two teammates as they were boarding a team bus.

“The guy was clearly either mentally ill or very drunk,” she told Associated Press. “It was pretty clear he had no idea who we were.”

Luckily, the injury was minor as Griner was able to go on to post 19 points in her Beijing team’s victory over Liaoning, China’s Xinhua News reported.

The star, who won this year’s WNBA title with the Phoenix Mercury, and is on the U.S. national team, is playing in China during off-season.

Griner assured everyone she was okay via her Instagram account after the incident, and called the cut on her elbow a “little scratch.”
