Cindy Blodgett’s immediate future with the Sacramento Monarchs is secure.
The Monarchs waived two players and placed another on the WNBA’s injured list Tuesday, which solidifies a roster spot for the former University of Maine star guard, Monarchs spokeswoman Connie Okada said.
Those moves cut the active roster down to the league limit of 11 players, which had to be done by May 28. The league’s fourth season opens May 29, and Sacramento plays its first game May 31 at home against expansion Seattle.
The Monarchs waived Heather Quella, a 6-foot-5 center who played sporadically with the Monarchs last season, and rookie forward Jessica Zinoble.
The team placed forward-center Linda Burgess on the injured list after she underwent surgery on her left knee to repair a lateral meniscal tear. Burgess is expected to be miss four to six weeks.
Blodgett, in her third season in the league and second with the Monarchs, averaged 0.9 points in 2.8 minutes per game.
