Greetings from Mohegan Sun Arena. The Sun and Sparks square off in under an hour here, but as for pre-game news, Kara Lawson, who was questionable with a knee injury, is in the Sun's starting lineup.
But be aware: Lawson felt good enough to go before Tuesday's game against New York, but left in the first half and never returned. She'll play point guard, with Renee Montgomery and Allison Hightower backing her up off the bench.
Tan White, Kelsey Griffin, Asjha Jones and Tina Charles, as usual, will also be starting for the Sun. For the Sparks, Ticha Penicheiro, Noelle Quinn, Marie Ferdinand-Harris, DeLisha Milton-Jones and Tina Thompson are starting, playing their 13th game since Candace Parker was sidelined for the season with a shoulder injury.
