Asjha Jones to arrive this week

Sun forward Asjha Jones will arrive in Connecticut Wednesday night and practice Thursday with the team, coach Mike Thibault said Monday. That means Jones, whose UMMC Ekaterinburg team swept Vologda in the third-place series in the Russian League, should be available for the season-opener Saturday against Atlanta at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Jones' Ekaterinburg teammate and Sun rookie, Sandrine Gruda, will not join the team until next week, however, as she will return home to France to sort a few personal responsibilities, including shoring up her work visa.

The Sun are currently practicing at Emmanuel College in Boston and will return to Connecticut Wednesday.
