Liberty coach Laimbeer: Shoni Schimmel taking time off

NEW YORK (AP) Liberty guard Shoni Schimmel has missed the first few days of training camp and isn't expected with the team any time soon.

"Shoni has decided to take some time off," New York Liberty coach Bill Laimbeer said.

She suffered a concussion in late August that sidelined her for the remainder of the season. As far as how much time Schimmel is planning to take, Laimbeer didn't want to say.
