I would love to see Ivana Matovic make a return to the NT but obviously she is a doubt

WNBA season which tips off a few weeks before the Eurobasket could factor in. The players who played there last year and could be expected to want to return:

Katie Douglas - Greece - Indiana Fever
Becky Hammon - Russia - San Antonio Silver Stars
Epiphanny Prince - Russia - Chicago Sky
Svetlana Abrosimova - Russia - Seattle Storm
Yelena Leuchanka - Belarus - Atlanta Dream
Sancho Lyttle - Spain - Atlanta Dream
Sandrine Gruda - France - Connecticut Sun
Anete Jekabsone-Zogota - Latvia - Connecticut Sun

Katie Douglas didn't get Greek passport fast enough so she is not listed as a Greek player and she's not going to be in Greece's roster for Eurobasket 2011.

From what I understood she didn't get the paperwork done until the World Championships began but it was done during the World Championships so I don't know why wouldn't she be eligible to play for Greece in the next Eurobasket.

If hers is the average case of torn meniscus she should be able to return to practice sometime in March. Maybe she won't be at full strength but she should be playing. Or are there reports that indicate otherwise?

Why? At her age this could be the last chance to go to the Olympics. Which athlete wouldn't want that?
LAT wrote:Hammon - ends career in NT
Than why do the Hammonites still keep throwing her name regarding next summer and team Russia, of all the people they should know what their idol is planning on?
LAT wrote:Stepanova - questionable
Do you really think someone in Russia will let her retire from the National Team? I'm betting that they'll use her as long as she can run up and down the court.

Bimbaite
Dec 14, 2010 It is planned that she takes 3-4 weeks rehabilitation (basketnews.lt)
Feb 07, 2011 She will return shortly (basketnews.lt)

Douglas
I do not believe that she will play in the national team this year.
The Olympic Games are still too far.
She wil play in the WNBA.

Hammon
Remember how the russians fought for the American woman in 2009?
Kalmanovich no longer there.
She wil play in the WNBA.

Stepanova
The russians want her.
But she does not want.
She has a big contract with the club and she does not want to lose it.
A contract forcing (-?) her to play in the national team.
