Connecticut Sun lose a pair of veterans

The Connecticut Sun reluctantly are getting even younger.

Kelsey Griffin and Allison Hightower had the most continuous service with the WNBA team heading into the season as both were taken by the Sun in the 2010 WNBA Draft. However, it was announced today that Griffin was being waived and Hightower suspended as a result of their injuries.

Griffin injured her hip in the preseason opener and underwent surgery which will force her to miss the season. In a release the team said it hopes to sign Griffin next season.

Hightower underwent knee surgery in March and with her unavailable and it being uncertain when Chiney Ogwumike will return to the court after her own knee injury, the decision was made to suspend Hightower.

With the moves former UConn standout Kelly Faris is the only player who was with the Sun before the start of the 2014 season.
