Off to a slow start, the Atlanta Dream's offensive struggles have gotten worse since losing WNBA leading scorer Angel McCoughtry to a knee injury. An extended absence by Lindsey Harding certainly wouldn't help.
Both players are listed as day to day by the Dream, who try to avoid a season-high third straight loss Sunday when they visit the New York Liberty in the final meeting between the teams in 2012.
After reaching the WNBA finals last season, the Dream (4-7) sit one game ahead of last-place Washington in the Eastern Conference and lead New York by a half-game.
Offensive struggles are a big reason why. Atlanta was the highest-scoring team in the East last year, averaging 82.5 points, but it's scoring 77.4 per game this season.
The Dream failed to break 75 points in the last two games as McCoughtry sat on the bench with a sprained left knee ligament.
Coach Marynell Meadors doesn't know when McCoughtry, averaging 22.7 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocks, will return.
