Fans still get to see Carrington on the sidelines and have the chance to meet her and get an autograph, but will have to wait to watch her play until the WNBA season starts.
Carrington and the Connecticut Sun play their first game of the WNBA season on May 19 against the Indiana Fever at Gainbridge Fieldhouse at 6 p.m. CT.
