WNBA News and Notes Wednesday 7/8

Wednesday's Best WNBA Bet

Chicago Sky at Phoenix Mercury (-10, 179)

If the Chicago Sky are going to play any better on the road, they will have to do it without star center Sylvia Fowles.

The Sky's leading rebounder and best player, Fowles, will not play this week due to soreness in her right knee. She missed 17 games during her rookie 2008 season, and Chicago was just 12-22 overall.

Fowles is averaging 12.7 points and 9.0 rebounds. With her in the lineup, the Sky are just 1-4 on the road, with the lone win and cover in overtime at Atlanta.

Chicago also has lost its last six meetings with Phoenix, the top-scoring team in the WNBA.

Pick: Phoenix -10
