    Source: WNBA star Brittney Griner’s detention extended 30 days after appearing in court

    Russian authorities have extended Brittney Griner’s detention another 30 days and denied a request for house arrest, a source told ESPN’s TJ Quinn.

    The WNBA star appeared in a Moscow court Friday for a hearing on whether her detention would be extended.

    Griner, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, was detained at the Moscow airport after vape cartridges containing oil derived from cannabis were allegedly found in her luggage, which could carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

    The Biden administration says Griner, 31, is being wrongfully detained. The WNBA and U.S. officials have worked toward her release, without visible progress.
