Storm guard Sue Bird didn't practice today, a precautionary measure due to a right thigh bruise. Bird suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Saturday's loss to San Antonio. She is expected to return for practice Monday.
Guard Betty Lennox practiced after hitting her head hard on the court in the final quarter.
Both guards struggled against San Antonio. Defending off-ball screens and shooting the ball are becoming the main reason Seattle isn't effective against San Antonio this season. Lennox is a combined 5 for 18 from the field against the Silver Stars while Bird, who is shooting a career-low 33.3 percent so far this season, is 7 for 21 in two games.
