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.
