Why A’ja Wilson was wearing a cast at Aces’ championship parade

The black cast worn by Aces star and WNBA Finals MVP A’ja Wilson at the team’s championship parade Monday was for a left wrist and thumb sprain with splinting for preventative rest, people with knowledge of the situation said Wednesday.

Wilson averaged 21.3 points on 50 percent shooting to go with 12.5 rebounds in the finals, in which the Aces defeated the New York Liberty in four games.

She was also named Defensive Player of the Year and earned first-team All-WNBA honors this season.
