NEW YORK — Kia Nurse offered words of encouragement to her Los Angeles Sparks teammate Cameron Brink. The veteran guard knows exactly what the rookie is going through, having torn her ACL in 2021. Brink tore the ACL in her left knee in Tuesday's loss to Connecticut. She's still talking to doctors to figure out when she'll have surgery, coach Curt Miller said after the team's shootaround Thursday before a game against New York. Nurse said she's talked to Brink a few times already and offered to be a sounding board for questions that the 6-foot-4 center may have. Brink's rookie season ended after 15 games and she was averaging 8.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.5 blocks. Miller said her value to the Sparks went well beyond her stats.
