There are three late-morning games today in the WNBA. Here they are!

Connecticut Sun (10-9) vs. New York Liberty (5-14)

When: Wednesday July 11 at 11:30 a.m. EST

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena | TICKETS

How to watch: NBA TV (national TV) | NBC Sports Boston (New England TV) | MSG Plus (New York area TV) | WNBA League Pass (worldwide streaming)

Injury report: For the Sun, Alyssa Thomas (shoulder) is doubtful and Courtney Williams (personal reasons) is questionable.

Storylines to follow

The Sun and Liberty are regional rivals. We will get to see which team is more desperate to get a win today. The Liberty have been poor all around this season despite keeping the bulk of their roster together and having no major injuries. The Sun may be better in the standings but they lost seven of their last 10 games. Connecticut is still the favorite, but they just haven’t looked good over the last few weeks.

Washington Mystics (12-7) vs. Atlanta Dream (9-9)

When: Wednesday July 11 at 11:30 a.m. EST

Where: Capital One Arena | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide streaming) | Monumental Sports Network (DC market)

Injury report: No injuries were reported by either team.

Storylines to follow

The Mystics are comfortably the Eastern Conference’s best team — except that the conferences don’t matter anymore, even in All-Star voting. Washington is coming back from a two-game road trip they split with a win against the Sparks and loss to the Storm. The Dream, meanwhile, will hope they’re still jet lag, to sneak out of DC with a victory.

Indiana Fever (2-17) vs. Minnesota Lynx (11-8)

When: Wednesday July 11 at 12 p.m. EST

Where: Bankers Life Fieldhouse | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide streaming) | WNDY (Indianapolis TV)

Injury report: For the Fever, Shenise Johnson (knee) is out.

Storylines to follow

The Fever and Lynx meet for the second time in just over a week. On July 3, Indiana defeated Minnesota, 71-59, after Natalie Achonwa and Cappie Pondexter put up big performances. Minnesota will be looking for revenge today, but the Fever hope the second half of their season is better than their first.
