Burse is fine

Storm center Janell Burse participated in shootaround this morning and should start despite suffering from the stomach flu that began in Indianapolis on Sunday. Burse has been taking medication and is trying to rehydrate herself after eating for the first time Tuesday evening. She said she felt weak when she tried to run after not practicing Tuesday, but attributed it to not having any nourishment in her body.
Burse is the latest casualty on the team. Guard Sue Bird suffered from food poisoning prior to leaving for the current five-game road trip, then she jammed her finger in shootaround prior to the Connecticut loss. Guard Betty Lennox suffered a busted lip from a teammate in shootaround, then was hit again by Indiana forward Tamika Catchings during the loss Sunday. Lastly, center Tiffani Johnson had her nostrils stuffed with gauze after suffering a bump in the Fever game.
All are healthy and aren’t thinking about the minor bruises.
“I don’t like to make excuses,” Bird said.
Update
So those autograph seekers outside the Storm’s hotel?
Seems they don’t miss an opportunity for a signature.
Even though the group of fans wore Boston Red Sox jerseys and only had baseballs, waiting for those players to leave the same hotel, some of the fans stopped a few of the Storm players, including forward Lauren Jackson, to sign the hardball as the women boarded their bus Tuesday for practice.
