Lynx Injury Report: Diamond Miller (ankle), Natalie Achonwa (maternity leave) are OUT.
Lynx Confirmed Lineup: Tiffany Mitchell, Kayla McBride, Napheesa Collier, Jessica Shepard, Dorka Juhász
Mystics Injury Report: Kristi Toliver (rest) is OUT.
Mystics Confirmed Lineup: Natasha Cloud, Ariel Atkins, Brittney Sykes, Elena Delle Donne, Shakira Austin
Rookie Dorka Juhász is expected to make her 2nd career start in a bigger Lynx lineup without Diamond Miller. Next to Juhász, Jessica Shepard saw a slight uptick in usage while the frontcourt duo played 37 and 38 minutes respectively. It will be a challenge for them on both ends of the floor against Elena Delle Donne and Shakira Austin. Only the Aces have a better defensive rating than Washington. The Mystics are on the second end of a home back-to-back. Myisha Hines-Allen was upgraded and is no longer listed on Washington's injury report, but coach Thibault noted there will be an unspecified minutes restriction.
Storm Injury Report: None reported
Storm Confirmed Lineup: Yvonne Turner, Jewell Loyd, Kia Nurse, Ezi Magbegor, Mercedes Russell
Sparks Injury Report: Jasmine Thomas (knee), Azura Stevens (back), Katie Lou Samuelson (pregnancy) are OUT.
Sparks Confirmed Lineup: Jordin Canada, Lexie Brown, Layshia Clarendon, Nneka Ogwumike, Chiney Ogwumike
Jewell Loyd and the Storm will look for their first win of the season against a Sparks team coming off an overtime game in Phoenix last night. Loyd leads the league with 26.0 points per game while Ezi Magbegor is averaging 10.3 rebounds per game, good for fourth-best in the league. After finishing the 2022 season last in rebounds per game, the Sparks are a league-worst 31.0 rebounds per game through four games.
