The Washington Mystics will no longer have a preseason game against the New York Liberty at the Barclays Center on Saturday. Instead, the Mystics will have some workouts as they look to finalize their roster for opening day.
So, Mystics will hold some individual workouts tomorrow with the Liberty game canceled. Thibault isn’t concerned, the third preseason game got added late and was a luxury. Happy to get good work in today. #wnba— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) April 29, 2022
The Mystics finished their preseason with a 1-1 record. In their first preseason game on April 24, they got blown out 88-69 by the Atlanta Dream. Shatori Walker-Kimbrough led the team with 13 points. It should be noted that the Mystics sat several of their key players including Elena Delle Donne and Alysha Clark.
In their second and now last preseason game, they beat the Minnesota Lynx by 12 points. Elena Delle Donne put up 21 points in her season debut and Natasha Cloud followed with 18 points.
The next time the Mystics are scheduled to play is at their regular-season opener on Friday, May 6. They’ll host the Indiana Fever at 7 p.m. ET.
