Diana Taurasi will likely not be playing in this year’s WNBA All-Star Game.

Taurasi has only played in seven of the Mercury’s 19 games this season. First out with a sternum fracture and now an injury that she said was “pretty much a hip pointer.”

The WNBA legend hasn’t played since July 3.

Taurasi is still set to play in her fifth Olympics for Team USA. It’s unclear if she will play in Team USA’s exhibition games against Australia on Friday and Nigeria on Sunday, but Taurasi has said she should be ready for the “real games” at the Olympics.
