LJ, Bird sidelined

Storm All-Stars Lauren Jackson and Sue Bird did not practice today.
Bird missed her second consecutive practice, today because of swelling in her left knee. She participated in a non-contact drill at the beginning of the session then left to be examined by team doctors. Storm coach Anne Donovan said there was noticeable limping. Bird missed Sunday’s session due to a right thigh contusion sustained in Saturday’s loss to San Antonio.
Jackson missed practice because of an undisclosed illness. She was at the training facility, but media requests to speak to the team’s leading scorer were denied.
Both Bird and Jackson were to participate in a photo shoot this afternoon with Sonics All-Star Ray Allen and his daughter as part of the league-wide “Dads and Daughter’s” campaign, where fathers are encouraged to take their children to WNBA games. The photo will likely now only include the Allens.
