5 P.M. at Chicago • 106.1-FM

Lynx update: The Lynx, playing without starting center Janel McCarville, had their 10-game winning streak ended at home Thursday by a Washington team that beat them up on the boards (a 44-24 edge). So now, with McCarville still questionable because of a concussion, the Lynx have to play the Sky, the best rebounding team in the WNBA. Maya Moore has scored a total of 50 points in her past two games, shooting 19-for-30. Seimone Augustus is averaging 18.8 points and is shooting 57.7 percent in four August games. Lindsay Whalen has averaged 17.3 points over her past three games, but she is coming off a five-turnover game vs. Washington. Whether McCarville plays or not, the Lynx need more out of backup post players Amber Harris and Devereaux Peters, neither of whom scored Thursday. The loss, coupled with a win by Los Angeles on Saturday, cut the Lynx’s lead in the Western Conference to two games.

Sky update: Chicago ended a two-game losing streak with a victory Friday in Connecticut. The Sky leads the Eastern Conference by one game over Atlanta. The Lynx get their first look at Elena Delle Donne, the clear front-runner for Rookie of the Year. Delle Donne’s size and skill — she can post up, pass or score on the perimeter — has already made her one of the most difficult matchups in the league. She is first among rookies and sixth in the league in scoring (17.9). Being surrounded by top talent has helped. C Sylvia Fowles is averaging 15.5 points and 11.6 rebounds. G Epiphanny Prince is averaging 15.4 points, and F Swin Cash is averaging 9.0 points .
