As the basketball world tosses and turns

Rough night for Dallas, as Plenette Pierson is still out with a concussion and Glory Johnson is reported to have broken a toe in Thursday’s Atlanta game, which will keep her out 4-6 weeks. Minnesota was already gunning for a recoup win, and they got one……Lynx 93, Wings 56.

Ouch.

Minnesota did it without Seimone Augustus, who sat out her second consecutive game with knee soreness.

Uh oh.

Before the game, the Lynx announced they would wear warm up T-shirts supporting this week’s shooting victims. The front reads: “Change Starts with Us. Justice & Accountability.” The names of the victims are on the backs of the shirts.

Why am I not surprised that WNBA players are the first pro ballers to take a political stand in this nightmarish time?

Still wondering why the league continues to be secretive about injuries.

Tomorrow’s schedule is a big one:

Dream at Sun

Stars at Liberty

Mercury at Sky

Mystics at Sparks

Fever at Storm
