Delle Donne to miss All-Star game with concussion

Posted: Updated:

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - Elena Delle Donne will miss the WNBA All-Star game on Saturday because of a concussion.

The No. 2 pick in the draft was injured in the Chicago Sky's loss to Washington on Wednesday when she was going for a loose ball with a minute left in the third quarter.

Delle Donne is the first rookie to lead the All-Star voting and will be replaced on the Eastern Conference roster by Atlanta's Erika de Souza. The former Delaware star is averaging 18.2 points, third-best in the WNBA.

Delle Donne joins top draft pick Brittney Griner on the sideline for the league's showcase game this weekend at Mohegan Sun Arena. Griner is still recovering from a sprained left knee. She was replaced on the roster by Tina Thompson.

Had Delle Donne and Griner both played, it would have been the first time in league history that two rookies from the same class started an All-Star game.
