There are two Tuesday evening games in the WNBA. To the previews!


Dallas Wings (10-8) vs. Phoenix Mercury (14-6)

When: Tuesday July 10 at 8 p.m. EST

Where: College Park Center | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide streaming) | Fox Sports Southwest Dallas Plus (Dallas TV) | Fox Sports Arizona Plus (Phoenix TV)

Injury report: For the Wings, Karima Christmas-Kelly (knee) is out for the season and Theresa Plaisance (knee) is also out. For the Mercury, Sancho Lyttle (ACL tear) is out for the season.

Storylines to follow

The Wings have been inconsistent all season long, but Skylar Diggins-Smith and Liz Cambage are heading into this game on a three-game win streak. Yes, they all came against likely lottery-bound teams like the Sky, Fever and Liberty, but the Wings are at least helping themselves by beating the teams they should.

The Mercury are running head-to-head with the Storm for the top spot in the WNBA standings, though they did lose their last game to the Dream on Sunday. This matchup could be a possible playoff series as well!


Chicago Sky (7-12) vs. Las Vegas Aces (8-12)

When: Tuesday July 10 at 8:30 p.m. EST

Where: Wintrust Arena | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide streaming) | The U Too (Chicago area TV)

Injury report: For the Sky, Jamierra Faulkner is out for the season due to a knee injury. For the Aces, Isabelle Harrison is out due to a leave of absence.

Storylines to follow

The Aces and Sky meet for the second time in less than a week. Last Thursday, the Aces won 84-80 where Kayla McBride scored 28 and A’ja Wilson added 24 more. Chicago was able to stay in the game because they had more even production among all their players. Allie Quigley led the Sky with 13 points.

Tonight, Chicago has a chance to pull out the win on their homecourt. However, the Aces have played much more consistently since they had a poor start to their season due to many of their key players being abroad. Don’t be surprised to see Las Vegas clinch a playoff spot given how they have come together.
