Lyttle to start for Dream

Hello all. The Sun-Atlanta Dream game here at Mohegan Sun Arena is a little over 30 minutes away, and the Dream have already lost something. In traveling from Indiana, where they lost to the Fever 89-70 on Friday, the team's luggage was misplaced, apparently leaving them with nothing but their uniforms.

They will, however, have All-Star forward Sancho Lyttle in the starting lineup tonight. Lyttle, who missed two games and the 'Stars at the Sun' All-Star event after sustaining a concussion, will return to the starting lineup alongside Erika de Souza, Angel McCoughtry, Iziane Castro Marques, and Shalee Lehning. She returned to game action last night, but didn't start, scoring 10 points in 20 minutes off the bench.

The Sun, meanwhile, are starting Kara Lawson, Tan White, Kelsey Griffin, Asjha Jones and Tina Charles. They featured a similar first five (Allison Hightower instead of Griffin) for their 108-103 overtime loss at Atlanta in their final game before last weekend's All-Star break.

Check back for updates at halftime.
