Russia has extended the pretrial detention of WNBA superstar Brittney Griner by another month. The two-time Olympic gold medalist and seven-time WNBA all-star has been jailed in Russia since February after cannabis oil was allegedly found in her luggage when she flew into Russia to play during the WNBA’s offseason. The U.S. State Department recently declared that Griner is being “wrongfully detained” in Russia.
