Jebasone-Zogota out, White doubtful for Tulsa game

The Sun are going to be short-handed Tuesday night.

Anete Jekabsone-Zogota did not travel with the team for Tuesday's game at Tulsa after returning to Connecticut to have an MRI on her injured knee, and coach Mike Thibault said he doesn't expect reserve Tan White to play either after she injured her shooting hand in Sunday's 77-68 loss at New York.

Jekabsone-Zogota played roughly five minutes against the Liberty before leaving the game. It appears the 5-foot-9 guard aggravated an old injury in her right knee, and she underwent an MRI on Sunday night, though Thibault said the team didn't expect to get the results until later tonight.

White is wearing a splint and had X-rays done. The extent of her injury is unclear at the moment, but Thibault doubted she'd be available against the Shock (3-11), who are in last place in the West but are known for their pressure defense. They lead the conference in steals (10.7 per game) and forced turnovers (18.5).

Game time is 8 p.m.
