The Storm received mixed news on Thursday.
Results from All-Star forward Lauren Jackson’s examined left shin showed no more damage than when the injury was last evaluated in May, but she said she is still feeling discomfort and could miss Saturday’s home game against Minnesota.
Scheduling does play into Jackson’s ability to rest as Seattle has a week in between the Lynx game and a matchup with Indiana on July 9, which is also the final game before the All-Star break. But if the pain doesn’t subside by the July 12 mid-summer classic, Jackson could miss it, too.
Currently the Storm is listing Jackson, the Storm’s leading scorer (19.6), as day-to-day.
On the flip side, forward Wendy Palmer’s return will be prolonged at least two weeks. She had her partially torn left Achilles reevaluated on Thursday and while there was no more damage, doctors didn’t like the progress and placed her in a cast for two weeks. Palmer, a 10-year vet who was signed to provide backup minutes for Jackson, has already missed four weeks to deal with the injury.
