The Washington Mystics are playing the Minnesota Lynx for the second time this regular season tonight on the road at 8 p.m. ET. The game will be available to watch on NBA TV and Bally Sports North. In their June matchup, the Mystics pulled off a 4-point win thanks to Tina Charles’ team-high 31 points. Charles traveled with the team to Minnesota but she is still questionable to play. If she does suit up, it is unknown if she will be placed under a minutes restriction.
Elena Delle Donne, who is still recovering from her back surgeries, is unlikely to travel for the two-game road trip, according to the Washington Post’s Kareem Copeland.
Elena Delle Donne (back) is unlikely to travel for the trip. Especially considering the long flights to and from Seattle. That sequence where she got jostled set her back some. Thibault ultimately hopes to be relatively healthy for the final four games of the season. #wnba https://t.co/GOK7rqilDt— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 2, 2021
The Mystics (10-16) are currently 9th in league standings with 6 games left. The Lynx are currently ranked 4th with a 17-9 record.
The Lynx won their Thursday night game against the Sparks. Sylvia has a dominant performance, scoring 15 points and grabbing 18 rebounds. Fowles went 7-10 from the field. In addition to containing and boxing out Fowles, the Mystics will have to make sure they know where Kayla McBride, Napheesa Collier, and Aerial Powers are.
