Burse back

Storm center Janell Burse will start tonight against Phoenix. Aside from one good week of training camp, Burse has been out since April 5 with a slight labrum tear in her left shoulder, missing her team’s past two games.
“I’m a little nervous, hopefully in the first minute that’ll go away,” she said after shoot-around.
Burse’s return moves veteran Wendy Palmer to the bench, which should help Seattle get more production out of the reserves, who have shown glimpses of strong defense, but not much offense.
You can read more about Burse and the bench in Friday’s paper.
For the Mercury, guard Kelly Miller is creeping closer to doubtful, but is officially listed as a game-time decision. She has a right hamstring injury. Miller’s condition worries new coach Paul Westhead because she’s the best at running his fast-paced offense. Guard Diana Taurasi (bruised left thigh) will start.
