The agent for Brittney Griner tells The Associated Press that the basketball star was cut by a man in a knife attack in China but didn't need to go to the hospital.

Agent Lindsay Kagawa Colas said Tuesday that Griner sustained a small cut when the man swiped at her elbow as her team was boarding a bus after practice. Colas said the 6-foot-8 Griner didn't require stitches.

The attack occurred Monday. It was not immediately clear in which city this happened.

Griner plays in the WNBA with the Phoenix Mercury. This is her second season in China and first with the Beijing Great Wall.
