Lynx Augustus in boot, will miss tonight's game against Atlanta


The two best teams in the WNBA are in action tonight at Target Center, but Minnesota will be without their second-leading scorer Seimone Augustus.

Augustus turned her ankle in Minnesota's 91-59 blowout win over the Phoenix Mercury Sunday, and an MRI Monday revealed it is nothing more than a sprain.

The sprain, however, is apparently severe enough to sideline Augustus for tonight's showdown with the Eastern Conference leading, one-loss Atlanta Dream.

Augustus is in a boot as a precautionary measure, and no specific date has been set for her return. Here's a visual to give you some context.

She looks in good spirits, and the game will go on without her, assuming the water in Target Center is back on in time for the 8 o'clock tip off.
