The New York Liberty have activated center Kia Vaughn, the team announced on Wednesday.

Vaughn had been on the temporary suspension list and missed the past six games as she competed for the Czech Republic in the 2017 EuroBasket Women Tournament. In three games overseas, Vaughn averaged 16 points and six rebounds.

Vaughn played the first five games of the season for the Liberty, posting 6.4 points and 4.0 rebounds per contest. She also led the team in field goal percentage at .609.

To make room for Vaughn, the Liberty have waived Ameryst Alston. Alston played sparingly over two games since joining the team earlier this month.

The Liberty host the Connecticut Sun on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. ET.
