The Seattle Storm star is sitting out the WNBA season this year after undergoing surgery on her right hamstring in January for a chronic injury.

The game Sunday was her second since returning from the injury layoff, appearing in the two-game, total-point Oceania series against New Zealand.

The four-time Olympic medalist with Australia - including a bronze at last year's London Games - and three-time WNBA MVP has not played a full season in the league since 2010 when Seattle won its second championship.
