Storm guard Jewell Loyd ruled out vs. Dream due to foot injury

Seattle Storm guard and WNBA leading scorer Jewell Loyd sat out Wednesday night's contest against the Atlanta Dream due to a right foot injury.

The Storm ruled out the five-time All-Star shortly before tipoff.

One night earlier, Loyd tied the WNBA record of nine 3-pointers during a 93-86 road loss to the Washington Mystics. Kelsey Mitchell of the Indiana Fever made nine in a 2019 contest.

Loyd scored 39 points against the Mystics to raise her WNBA-best scoring average to 25.7. She also leads the league with 66 3-pointers.
