Connecticut's Sydney Carter, left, who was signed on June 11 as a replacement player, was waived Tuesday by the Sun.

Mohegan - The Connecticut Sun waived replacement player Sydney Carter on Tuesday as they expect fellow guards Renee Montgomery and Tan White to return this weekend.

Carter was signed as a replacement player on June 11 under the WNBA's emergency hardship clause because of injuries to Montgomery (sprained left ankle) and White (broken right finger).

"It is with much reluctance that we must release Sydney Carter," Sun head coach Anne Donovan said in a statement released by the team. "Syd did a tremendous job filling some of the holes we have had at the point guard position and was an absolute pleasure to work with."

Carter played six games for Connecticut and averaged 4.5 points, 2.8 assists and 1.7 rebounds.

The Sun play at Tulsa on Friday (8 p.m.), and at San Antonio on Saturday (8 p.m.)
