May 14, 2022 - Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) - Chicago Sky News Release


* Three-time All-Star Allie Quigley made her 2022 season debut for the Chicago Sky today after missing the first two games of the season with a knee injury

* This game featured the top two picks of the 2008 WNBA Draft, Candace Parker and Sylvia Fowles, respectively

* Fowles was drafted by the Chicago Sky, donning a Sky jersey from 2008-2014

* This is the first time since 2019 where Chicago's Emma Meesseman and Minnesota's Aerial Powers have played against each other since winning the 2019 WNBA Championship together with the Washington Mystics

NEXT UP: The Sky will travel to Seattle to square off against the Storm, who dropped its third game in a row on Saturday, losing to the Phoenix Mercury, 69-64. Tipoff at Climate Pledge Arena is scheduled to be on Wednesday, May 18 at 9:00 p.m. CT and can be viewed on Facebook and Marquee Sports Network.

A COVID-depleted roster has prevented the Storm from playing at full strength this season. Storm star Breanna Stewart and guard Epiphanny Prince sat out for the second straight game in health and safety protocols. Center Mercedes Russell has also not played this season due to an undisclosed, non-basketball injury. The Storm most recently dropped their past two games against Phoenix with Storm guard Jewell Loyd leading the pack on Saturday's game with 26 points and five rebounds. She was the only player who scored in double-digits for Seattle.
