Jayda Evans covers college and pro women's basketball. While its her first year on the Washington beat, she has covered the Storm since its inception. She'll offer observations, critiques, occasional off-beat tales and answers to select e-mail inquires. Evans also has written a book on the Storm and women's hoops, called "Game On!"

Storm guard Sue Bird had an MRI this afternoon and the test showed no interior damage. She's listed as day to day.
Meanwhile, Sacramento forward DeMya Walker will be out for the remainder of the season due to a patellar tear in her right knee. After further evaluation, she's going to schedule surgery for later this summer.
Walker, a 2005 All-Star, was a key part to the Monarchs' championship that season. Storm coach Anne Donovan said she doesn't expect Sacramento to be hurt too badly when Seattle plays the Monarchs on Thursday because Rebekkah Brunson (shoulder) has rejoined practice after injury. I'm not quite certain Sacramento can survive without Walker, especially because center Yolanda Griffith is showing signs of aging.
