Sparks rookie Cameron Brink suffers knee injury on scary-looking play vs Sun

Los Angeles Sparks rookie Cameron Brink exited Tuesday night’s game with what appeared to be a scary knee injury against the Connecticut Sun.

Brink drove to the basket in the first quarter before she slipped and tweaked her knee. She was helped off of the court and hobbled toward the locker room before she was helped again.

“Except for the 2019 season, I’ve lost a starter to injury every single year I’ve been a head coach in this league,” Miller said. “You just have to have the mentality of next person up and rally around it.”
