The WNBA has three big games on the schedule for this Memorial Day Weekend Sunday!

Lynx vs. Mystics

When: Sunday May 27 at 3:00 p.m. EST

Where: Capital One Arena, Washington, DC | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide) | NBCSWA (local market)

Injuries and absences: Unknown — Game notes were not been provided.

What to watch: The Mystics have won a bunch of games they shouldn’t have. Their quest, of course, is to claim a 4-0 start to the season. But Maya Moore, Sylvia Fowles & Co. won’t make it easy as the Lynx are still trying to avenge their opening-day loss and reassert some dominance over the league.

Mercury vs. Sparks

When: Sunday May 27 at 5:00 p.m. EST

Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide) | SPECSN (local market)

Injuries and absences: No injuries were reported by the Mercury and Candace Parker (back) is doubtful for the Sparks.

What to watch: Candace Parker is listed as day-to-day as she continues to recover from what the team reported as a “minor back injury.” In other words, Parker is doubtful for this game ... which should mean absolutely nothing to a Mercury team that has yet to fully cohere. The Sparks have won big over the Mercury in recent seasons, and with Nneke Ogwumike, Chelsea Gray and Odyssey Sims still playing for LA, Phoenix will need a game of near-perfect execution to get a game against this squad.

Storm vs. Aces

When: Sunday May 27 at 8:30 p.m. EST

Where: Mandalay Bay Events Center, Las Vegas, NV | TICKETS

How to watch: NBA TV (nationally) | JOE TV (local market)

Injuries and absences: Unknown — Game notes were not been provided.

What to watch: It’s Vegas, baby! And the Aces are keen to put on a show for the team’s inaugural game in Sin City. Boys II Men and Cirque du Soleil performers will be on hand to help with the cheer factor. Kelsey Plum and Kayla McBride are back following championship play in Turkey. And the so-far 0-2 Aces will get a big test against a Seattle team that has been winning in all kinds of ways. It will be interesting to see how A’ja Wilson adjusts to the new-to-her shot callers on the floor.


Enjoy the game!
