The Mercury (9-14) are currently fifth in the Western Conference, with a matchup against the Liberty (8-12) coming up on Monday. The five-time All-Star averaged 19.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game on 45.2 percent shooting from the field and 31.6 percent from beyond the arc.

The Mercury’s season hasn’t gone as planned as they’ve tumbled down the regular-season standings. The season-long absence of Brittney Griner has punctuatedPhoenix’s problems. She is currently detained in a Russian jail for allegedly illegally possessing hashish oil in a vape pen. Griner’s trial started last week, and she will remain confined in a Russian cell for the entirety of her trial.
