While the Seattle Storm have been rolling right along inside the "Wubble," the Chicago Sky have not been too bad themselves. The Storm aim to extend their winning streak to five games when they face the Sky on Monday night at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. Healthy and focused on the matter at hand, Seattle (6-1) is once again among the WNBA elite after going a modest 18-16 without Sue Bird and Breanna Stewart last season.
The Phoenix Mercury got good news regarding star veteran Diana Taurasi, but it is unknown if she will be available for Monday night's matchup with the Dallas Wings. Taurasi left during the fourth quarter of Saturday's 74-68 loss to the Seattle Storm, favoring her side after attempting to drive to the basket. The 38-year-old underwent an MRI on her lower back and oblique area, but the team announced there was no structural damage and "that this injury is not related to Taurasi's 2019 back surgery."
Phoenix leads the league in scoring and field goal percentage and is third in 3-point shooting percentage. Defensively, the Mercury are still a work in progress, as they rank in the lower half of the league in points allowed, overall shooting percentage, and 3-point percentage. Atlanta Dream vs. Dallas Wings The Dream opened their season with a win over the Wings, but have won one game since then and have dropped their last three games.
