The Storm waived guard Tiffany Bias on Friday and announced its 12-player roster for Sunday’s season opener at Los Angeles.

The roster includes 10 returning players: Sue Bird, Abby Bishop, Alysha Clark, Markeisha Gatling, Crystal Langhorne, Jewell Loyd, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, Jenna O’Hea, Ramu Tokashiki and Monica Wright.

The new additions are two WNBA rookies: forward Breanna Stewart, the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft, and point guard Blake Dietrick, who was undrafted in 2015 out of Princeton, where she was the Ivy League Player of the Year.

“Training camp was a competitive and energetic environment, but now we’re thrilled to begin the regular season,” Storm president and general manager Alisha Valavanis said in a statement. “We look forward to opening up in Los Angeles on Sunday.”
