The Phoenix Mercury announced Saturday that Brittany Griner is ready to return to the court.

Griner is expected to join the team as they host the Seattle Storm in the second game of a four-game homestand on Saturday at 10 p.m. ET.

She will be taking a break to focus on her mental health after Mercury shared the news a week ago. 

Phoenix lost two road games and then beat the Atlanta Dream 91-71 on Thursday.

Griner has appeared in 20 games this season after missing all last year.

Greiner averaged 18.2 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game.

The Phoenix Mercury are at 7-19 and in tenth place in the WNBA standings with 14 games left in the season.

Phoenix has won the WNBA championship three times and has missed the playoffs only twice since 2007.
