Storm forward Lauren Jackson will miss Thursday's game at Sacramento due to an undisclosed illness. She missed her second consecutive practice today because she isn't feeling well and did not travel with the team. Jackson will see the Storm's doctor this week and her status will be updated by Friday. Her absence has nothing to do with her shins or foot.
Storm coach Anne Donovan will most likely start forward Wendy Palmer in Jackson's place. Seattle is 2-10 all-time in Sacramento and has lost its past two games.
Guard Sue Bird returned to practice today, wearing a sleeve on her previously swollen left knee. She traveled with the team and is slated to start on Thursday, but will need another MRI later this week.
