Unfortunately for the Mystics, Delle Donne, Hines-Allen, and Atkins will not play.
The Washington Mystics are facing the Chicago Sky Sunday at 3 p.m. ET. The game will be available on ABC (WJLA-TV in the DMV) and NBA TV Canada. It will be the the third time the Mystics match up against the Sky, after splitting a pair of games earlier this season.
The Mystics will be shorthanded again. Elena Delle Donne will continue to sit out due to her back, Ariel Atkins is out due to personal reasons and Myisha Hines-Allen is still recovering from an illness. Washington was able to pull off a win against the Atlanta Dream without this trio thanks to Tina Charles having her best game since returning from a gluteal strain. Charles posted a team-high 26 points and 16 rebounds.
The Washington Mystics, who have an 11-18 record, are now in 8th place in league standings. They have just 3 games left in the regular season so let’s see if they can hold onto that last spot.
