The WNBA has two games on the schedule for this Memorial Day Saturday.

Wings vs. Dream

When: Saturday May 25 at 6:00 p.m. EST

Where: McCamish Pavilion, Atlanta, GA | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide) | Fox Sports Southeast, Atlanta

Injuries and absences: No injuries have been reported for this game. However, Dallas forward Glory Johnson has missed a few games while recovering from a strained hamstring. She was originally predicted to miss at least four weeks.

What to watch: Center Liz Cambage and guard Skylar Diggins-Smith combined for 76 points in the Wings’ dominant win over the Dream back on May 20. For context, the final score was 101-78, which means Cambage and Diggins-Smith basically scored as much as the entire Atlanta team. If the Dream have any kind of answer for the Wings, it will likely come from a player who has been quiet so far this season, like Layshia Clarendon. Additionally, Angel McCoughtry has yet to fully break out for a dominant performance. If she has it in her, tonight’s game would be a great time for McCoughtry to unleash her inner beast.

Fever vs. Sun

When: Wednesday May 23 at 10:00 p.m. EST

Where: Mohegan Sun Area, Uncasville, CT | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide)

Injuries and absences: Shenise Johnson is out for the Fever due to rehab of an ACL injury. No injuries have been reported by the Sun.

What to watch: Coming off a big win a few nights ago during which Chiney Ogwumike grabbed the first win of her professional basketball career against sister Nneka, it is hard to envision a scenario in which this Fever team could get a win tonight. Indiana has showed improvements in recent games, but it is an 0-4 squad at the beginnings of development. Any chances at a win would be surprising.


Enjoy the game!
