Shock add rookie Karima Christmas, waive Lewis
TULSA, Okla. (AP)
Christmas takes the roster spot of point guard Doneeka Lewis, who played in five games and started twice in place of Ivory Latta. Latta has been out with a staph infection.
Christmas averaged 3.4 points and 1.2 rebounds for Washington but faced diminished playing time over the past two weeks. She was the 23rd overall pick in this year's draft.
Interim Shock coach Teresa Edwards says Christmas ''adds more shooting to our team and I feel that she's a rookie that brings something for the future growth of this organization.''
