Augustus taken to hospital for CT scan after fall
DURHAM, N.C. -- Seimone Augustus, the WNBA's rookie of the
year, was taken to the hospital Tuesday after hitting her head on
the court during the first day of training camp for the United
States women's world championship team.
Augustus took a charge during a defensive drill and hit her head
on the Cameron Indoor Stadium court, U.S. assistant coach Gail
Goestenkors said. Augustus complained of pain in her neck and head
before being taken for a precautionary CT scan, said Caroline
Williams, director of communications for USA Basketball.
Augustus, the former LSU star who averaged 22 points for the
Minnesota Lynx, is listed as day-to-day.
The U.S. team will play in the FIBA World Championship in San
Paulo, Brazil, from Sept. 12-23.
