Storm guards Sue Bird and Betty Lennox skipped practice today. Coach Anne Donovan said it was strictly precautionary and hoped with Monday being an off-day that both would be well-rested to practice on Tuesday and face the defending champion Detroit on Wednesday at KeyArena.
Bird is managing swelling in her left knee while Lennox had an old right Achilles tendon problem flare after scoring 18 points in a win over Houston on Friday. Those that did practice worked on their schemes against the zone - a tactic Indiana executed perfectly again on Saturday to hand Detroit its first loss of the season. Last week, the Fever implemented the zone during a 28-point win over the Storm.
