PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Star striker Alex Morgan is the biggest question for the Portland Thorns heading into Saturday's semifinal NWSL playoff match against FC Kansas City.

Morgan, a U.S. national team standout, has missed the Thorns' last two games with a sprained left knee. She was injured in a 2-1 loss at Boston on Aug. 7.

She'll make the trip to Kansas City, but her status is officially a game-time decision.

The Thorns finished the season 11-6 -5 to advance to the league's inaugural post season. Morgan led the team in points with eight goals and five assists. Christine Sinclair, a member of the Canadian national team, had eight goals and two assists.
