If you were online last night, you saw the news leak of the Istanbul nightclub terror attack. Thankfully, WNBA players near the scene are all safe and accounted for:
A handful of WNBA players, including Essence Carson, Chelsea Gray and Jantel Lavender of the Los Angeles Sparks, were next door to a deadly shooting in a nightclub in Istanbul early Sunday morning.
The league later issued a statement that all WNBA players competing now in Istanbul "are accounted for and safe."?About two dozen WNBA players are in Turkey during their offseason playing in a league there.
