Taj McWilliams-Franklin, who fell hard on her tailbone in Sunday's game, will play Tuesday for the Lynx.
She should be "good to go," Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said on Monday after the team returned to the Twin Cities from Seattle. The Storm beat the Lynx in double overtime to tie their best-of-three Western Conference semifinal series at one game apiece.
The winner Tuesday will face Los Angeles, which swept San Antonio in two games, in the conference finals.
Here is the schedule if the Lynx advance:
Los Angeles at Lynx, time, TV to be announced
Lynx at Los Angeles, time, TV to be announced
Wednesday, Oct. 10
Los Angeles at Lynx, if necessary, time, TV to be announced
If Seattle beats the Lynx, the Storm would open the conference finals in Los Angeles.
* The 15 rebounds that Rebekkah Brunson had on Sunday against the Storm is three shy of her season high of 18 on Sept. 7.
* Twenty of the Lynx's 27 regular-season wins this season were by double figures, eight by 20 points or more.
