Las Vegas Aces at New York Liberty, 8pm ET

Aces Injury Report: Chelsea Gray (foot), Kiah Stokes (foot), Candace Parker (foot) are OUT.

Aces Confirmed Lineup: Kelsey Plum, Jackie Young, Alysha Clark, A'ja Wilson, Cayla George

Liberty Injury Report: Han Xu (overseas commitment) is OUT.

Liberty Confirmed Lineup: Courtney Vandersloot, Sabrina Ionescu, Betnijah Laney, Breanna Stewart, Jonquel Jones

After losing the series' first two contests by a combined 45 points, the Liberty won Game 3 in convincing fashion. The big takeaway from that outing, however, was that Chelsea Gray suffered a fourth-quarter injury that will now force the Aces to alter the starting lineup for Game 4. Las Vegas must defend better from beyond the arc after New York converted 43.3% of their three-pointers in the last contest, with Jonquel Jones making four herself. During the regular season, opponents made 34.3% of their threes against the Aces.
