New, comment

Another shuffle in the back court for the Lynx as they look to extend their winning streak.

The Lynx have been without Seimone Augustus for the past two games as she attended to a personal matter, but were able to win both games without their starting shooting guard.

Augustus did get to watch the games, however, and had this funny account for our Lynx reporter Neil Olstad:

Augustus makes her return today in Indiana against the Fever, but the Lynx will be without point guard Lindsay Whalen, who will miss several weeks with a broken bone in her hand for which she underwent surgery.

It could be a blessing in disguise if Whalen can return fully healthy for the playoffs, which the team appears to be expecting. Some enforced rest for the veteran might not be the worst thing, if the Lynx can maintain their hold on the top seed in her absence. Renee Montgomery will slide into the starting lineup in her place.

The Lynx, currently 20-2, are four games ahead of the Los Angeles Sparks in the loss column.
