Brittney Griner will remain in custody in Russia for at least another two and a half weeks … the WNBA superstar’s detention was just extended by a court until July 2.
The ruling was handed down on Tuesday, according to Russian state media outlet TASS, after investigators requested the extension.
The decision comes on the heels of U.S. State Department officials meeting with representatives from Brittney’s current WNBA team, the Phoenix Mercury, to discuss ways to safely return the professional hooper to America.
Specific details of the meeting remain tight-lipped — it’s unclear who exactly attended or what was discussed — but officials confirmed to the Associated Press the forum did indeed happen.
The 31-year-old has been in Russian custody since mid-February … after officials say she had hash oil in her luggage while going through airport security.
