WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 26: Tayler Hill
WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 26: Tayler Hill /

The Washington Mystics could face a short-handed roster in Sunday afternoon’s game against the Atlanta Dream.

Late Saturday night, the Mystics listed Natasha Cloud and Tayler Hill as doubtful. Asia Taylor is listed as questionable. Cloud is suffering from a left knee strain, while Hill is dealing with issues in her neck and left shoulder. Taylor has neck pain problems.

Losing Hill for any length of time hurts the offensive capability of the Mystics. What she lacks in efficiency is compensated by her presence at the free throw line. Aided by a high free throw rate, Hill is averaging 14.8 points per game. In her most recent outing, she earned 18 points and eight assists in a Mystics win over the Connecticut Sun.

Cloud is one of Washington’s distributors off the bench. Through six games, she is averaging 4.8 points and 2.3 assists per game. Taylor has appeared in four games this season, but has been used sparingly.
