SALT LAKE CITY (AP) _ The Utah Starzz trimmed their roster to the regular-season limit of 11 on Friday by waiving guard Jacklyn Winfield and putting veteran forward LaTonya Johnson on the injured list.

Johnson is sidelined with severe chondromalacia in her right knee, a condition in which cartilage hardens. She averaged 2.5 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 11.5 minutes during the preseason.

Winfield played in three preseason games, averaging 1.5 points and 6.3 minutes.

The Starzz open their WNBA on Saturday night at Minnesota.
