(AP) -- Brittney Griner's wife, Cherelle, has thanked everyone for their support of the WNBA star, who was arrested last month in Russia.

Brittney Griner was detained at a Moscow airport after Russian authorities said a search of her luggage revealed vape cartridges. They were identified as containing oil derived from cannabis, which could carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
