Connecticut has won four of their five games to begin the 2023 campaign. They'll look to continue their hot start when they face the Lynx on Thursday. The Sun have maintained a healthy roster so far this season, and it seems like that'll be the case again for this matchup. As expected, Alyssa Thomas, DeWanna Bonner, and Brionna Jones have been extremely productive to start the year.

On the other side, the Lynx have yet to win a game. Minnesota suffered a big loss when rookie Diamond Miller went down last game with an ankle injury. Aerial Powers started the second half in place of Miller in that contest, and she or Dorka Juhasz will project to start tonight. Napheesa Collier has been playing huge minutes, and chances are that'll be the case again against the Sun's rock-solid frontcourt.
