Jones still expects to play Thursday

Sun forward Asjha Jones wore a brace around her right ankle and didn’t participate in every drill Wednesday in practice, but said she expects to play Thursday in the Sun’s playoff opener against the Indiana Fever. Sun trainer Jeremy Norman said the problem with Jones’ sprained ankle isn’t with lateral movement. She feels pain, however, when she moves it up and down (or more specifically when she flexes her toes up toward her shin).

Jones didn’t feel any soreness after practicing on Tuesday, though, which is a good sign.
