The Storm practiced Monday without All-Stars Sue Bird and Lauren Jackson. Bird did go through some 5-on-0 dummy offense early in the practice, but was scheduled to sit out later. Instead, she went to the doctor when a spot opened up to have her left knee examined. She has experienced some swelling in the knee.
“She was limping,” when she practiced, said Storm Head Coach Anne Donovan. Bird had previously sat out Sunday’s practice because of a right quad contusion suffered late in Saturday’s loss to San Antonio.
Jackson was at practice, but feeling under the weather.
“Don’t know what it is, but she’s not feeling well,” said Donovan.
The Storm will have tomorrow off and will use Wednesday’s practice to prepare for Thursday’s game with Sacramento.
