Geno Auriemma expects injured star Diana Taurasi to be fine for the Olympics next month. Taurasi has missed the Phoenix Mercury's past three games with a hip flexor injury and is out indefinitely according to the team. Taurasi sustained the injury during the team's training camp after reporting just seven days before the season opener following a full Eurolegue season in Turkey and training camp with USA Basketball. She missed the opener at Minnesota because of the injury and played just 10 minutes at Tulsa in the team's second game. She played 26 minutes and scored 18 points in Phoenix's home opener loss to Los Angeles. Auriemma said he checks the Internet to keep up on his U.S. national team. They will begin training on July 14 in Washington D.C.
PLAYERS: Diana Taurasi
