  1. Re. EDD's foot injury: When and how did she get hurt in the Sparks game?
    The only thing I noticed was when Ogwumike fell in the post at Delle Donne's feet just before she left the game mid-1st quarter.
    She returned pretty aggressively, but was limping noticeably by the time they took her out for good.

    I haven't had the chance to see Elena very much (pro or college) so this was disappointing — especially since Coach Ross wasn't pulling any punches on defense (Parker/Ogwumike primarily, while EDD was chasing Beard and O'Hea most of the time, it seemed).

    Sure wish that OT game with the Lynx had been televised — and was that the first overtime game this season?
