Up next for the Sparks: Sunday vs. Connecticut


When: 6:30.

Where: Staples Center.

On the air: Prime Ticket.

Records: Sparks 14-14, Sun 14-15.

Record vs. Sun: 0-1.

Update: After playing through some of the season without Candace Parker (maternity leave) and Lisa Leslie (sprained right knee), the Sparks will be fielding a depleted roster again tonight. Parker will return after missing Thursday's game against the Phoenix Mercury for what she called "personal reasons." But starting point guard Kristi Harrower will miss her second straight game after attending her grandmother's funeral Wednesday in Australia, her native country. Leslie and guard Noelle Quinn were absent from Saturday's practice because they were "under the weather," Sparks Coach Michael Cooper said. He said their status for tonight's game will be a game-time decision.
