Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner pauses on the court during the second half of a game against the Seattle Storm, Sept. 3, 2019, in Phoenix. Griner is easily the most prominent American citizen known to be jailed by a foreign government. Yet as a crucial hearing approaches next month, the case against her remains shrouded in mystery, with little clarity from the Russian prosecutors. (Ross D. Franklin/AP, File)
