Pregame notes

The return of Elena Delle Donne could possibly be on Sunday afternoon facing the Seattle Storm. She’s been progressing over time and looks like the time has finally come for her return.

If Delle Donne returns and everything goes smoothly then, Washington can hopefully get back in the swing of things and Tina Charles can have another deep scorer. Her first game back could be a bit rusty but only time will tell.

Washington is currently on a three-game losing streak having lost all three games on the west coast road trip. Now they’re on a five-game home stand where hopefully they can get going. Seattle is a top tier team especially with Breanna Stewart and Jewel Loyd taking over and keeping the Storm up and raining. If they both get hot then the Mystics are deep trouble. Hopefully Washington won’t depend too much on the three-pointer as it hasn’t been working lately.
