WNBA schedule mellows out

After four- and five-game nights recently, the WNBA’s schedule has slowed down the pace this week:

Tuesday: Sparks at Mystics

Wednesday: Dream at Sky

Thursday: Mercury at Stars and Lynx at Storm

Then there’s Friday:

Sparks at Sun

Sky at Fever

Mystics at Dream

Liberty at Shock

Note: Alana Beard and Erin Phillips will not travel with Los Angeles, due to a foot and knee injury, respectively. Nneka Ogwumike, who has been out this season so far with an ankle sprain, will travel with the Sparks.
