Powell to replace Leslie

With Lisa Leslie unable to play in Saturday's WNBA All-Star Game because of a knee injury, Nicole Powell of the Sacramento Monarchs has been added to the Western Conference team.

Powell headed into Wednesday's game against the Connecticut Sun averaging a career-high 15.1 points per game and is second on the team in rebounding pulling down 5.1 a game. She also went into Wednesday second in the league with 42 3-pointers made and is 44 for 44 from the free-throw line this season.

Western Conference coach Dan Hughes of the San Antonio Silver Stars will name a replacement for Leslie in the starting lineup.

Word is a handful of tickets are still available for Saturday's 3:30 p.m. game.
