Preview: Lynx at Shock

The Minnesota Lynx certainly will miss Seimone Augustus and Monica Wright, but the emergence of Anna Cruz has complemented the steady play of Maya Moore to soften the blow. Losing star players is something the Tulsa Shock have had to overcome all season. Visiting Minnesota seeks a fourth consecutive win while the Shock look to avoid a third straight defeat Sunday.

Lynx re-sign McKenith for backcourt depth

MINNEAPOLIS -- Nadirah McKenith will once again seek to provide the Lynx some backcourt depth. The team announced Friday it had re-signed the 5-foot-7 guard.

Reeve guides Lynx once again to playoffs in most challenging of years

MINNEAPOLIS -- The outcome was desirable. The execution, inadequate. As the Lynx worked through late-game scenarios at the end of practice last Thursday, reserve guards Monica Wright and Tricia Liston converged upon the opposing scout team point guard. With their bodies perfectly angled and their inside feet within millimeters of each other, they left him with nowhere to dribble...

Lynx fully healthy for first time all season

MINNEAPOLIS -- While working her team through situational scrimmage sets Thursday, Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve found herself a little wide-eyed. There was Seimone Augustus, coming off screens on the wing and knocking down that patented pull-up jumper of hers. There was Rebekkah Brunson, taking over in the paint just like she always has. There were Monica Wright and Devereaux Peters,...

Whalen leads Lynx to 91-84 win over Stars

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- With the Minnesota Lynx missing one of their three Olympians, Monica Wright made sure they never missed a beat. Wright hit two early 3-pointers and finished with a season-high 17 points as the Lynx beat the San Antonio Stars 91-84 on Thursday night. Seimone Augustus missed her second straight game with bursitis in her left knee, so Wright stepped into the starting...

Lynx return to 'A' game in gritty win over Storm

MINNEAPOLIS - Damiris Dantas' free throw clanged off the rim, affording Seattle an opportunity to climb further back into a game it had once trailed by 14. But Janel McCarville thwarted it before it even materialized. The Lynx center wasn't sure what direction the ball was headed, but the 31-year-old Lynx center summoned enough muscle to squeeze her way in front of Camille Little...

Lynx frontcourt stepping up despite injuries to key players

MINNEAPOLIS -- Frontcourt warmups have been a lonely endeavor for Janel McCarville so far this season. Whenever the Lynx prep for a game, there's the veteran center, taking passes from a ball boy and squaring up in front of assistant coach Jim Petersen. Behind her, two rookies -- one who speaks hardly any English -- with a combined 10 games of WNBA experience repeat the same drill...

Veteran newcomer White knows her place with Lynx

MINNEAPOLIS -- Toward the end of one of Minnesota's first 2014 training camp practices, Tan White slashed her way between two trapping defenders at the top of the key, crossed over past another and swooped in for an impressive, did-it-myself layup. The bevy of rookies present looked surprised. But Lynx forward Maya Moore didn't. She's seen White do this for years. "She's a tough...

Lynx's regular-season roster now set

MINNEAPOLIS -- Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Lynx's 2014 roster is now set. The team waived center Waltiea Rolle on Wednesday afternoon. Guard Christina Foggie was let go the day before, so the roster now stands at 12 players two days before the WNBA regular season begins. In past years, Minnesota would have one more cut to make. But because the league's new CBA expanded...

Lynx's Brunson out indefinitely after knee surgery

MINNEAPOLIS -- It's not a good preseason to be the knee of a Minnesota Lynx player. The team announced starting power forward Rebekkah Brunson has been sidelined indefinitely after undergoing an arthroscopy on her right knee Tuesday. She joins regular backups Monica Wright and Devereaux Peters on the list of players who will miss the beginning of the WNBA season. All three have similar...

This time, Lynx resolve to keep WNBA crown

MINNEAPOLIS -- That's what we do. So went the chant from the dozens gathered at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to greet the 2013 WNBA champions last fall as they de-boarded their flight back from Atlanta. Indeed, the Lynx have won two of the league's past three titles and appear in prime position to snag a third. But there's a reason no WNBA team has won back-to-back...

MINNEAPOLIS -- Even with their top two bench options out for the start of the season, the defending WNBA champions aren't exactly in a bind -- not yet, anyway. But the absences of guard Monica Wright and forward Devereaux Peters until further notice place further stress on identifying players who can make a difference right away. And that can be a tough task after just a week of...
