Former Gonzaga Bulldogs point guard Courtney Vandersloot suffered a concussion and will be out on Wednesday against the Seattle Storm – marking her second straight absence after a streak of 88 consecutive games played for the Chicago Sky.
Sloot suffered the concussion against the Los Angeles Sparks, missing her team’s next game against Dallas and now again against Seattle.
The good news is that Vandersloot was riding a bike on the side of Chicago’s practice on Tuesday, and Sky head coach James Wade said she is feeling good while she works through the league’s concussion protocol.
Sloot is averaging 10.8 points and 6.2 assists this season, recently appearing in her fourth career All-Star game for the Sky – who are in first place in the WNBA.
Vandersloot has been struggling a bit lately, however, averaging just 5.3 points on 14.3% shooting from deep across her last six games. Hopefully she is not only back on the court soon, but that some time away from the court will help her regain her shooting form as the Sky look to repeat as WNBA champions this season.
