Storm All-Star Lauren Jackson won’t play against New York

Storm PF Lauren Jackson (pictured right by the WNBA) will not play against New York on Tuesday for precautionary reasons after suffering a concussion on Saturday. Jackson, 29, was hit by Los Angeles F DeLisha Milton-Jones toward the end of the first quarter of the Storm win against the Sparks, also suffering a bloody nose.
Seattle’s leading scorer (21.4 points), Jackson was evaluated three times since the incident and will continue to be monitored. F Le’coe Willingham, who started for the 2009 champion Phoenix, will replace the Australian in the Storm lineup.
This is Seattle’s final game before the WNBA break for its midseason classic in Connecticut. Jackson, a seven-time All-Star, is expected to represent the WNBA stars in a game against USA Basketball on July 10. Jackson will also join her national team for training during that period, playing a closed scrimmage against the Americans on July 11.
The Storm is 17-22 all-time without Jackson in their lineup during the regular season, missing her the past two postseasons due to ankle and back injuries.
