ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — Tanisha Wright scored 17 points to help the Seattle Storm beat short-handed Chicago, which was missing star Elena Delle Donne, 80-76 on Tuesday night.

Delle Donne, who is second in the league in scoring at just over 22 points a game, was sidelined with a reported flareup of Lyme Disease that plagued her in college. Forward Jessica Breland also sat out with a lower leg injury. Chicago is still without Sylvia Fowles, who is recovering from off-season hip surgery. She’s expected back later this month.

Chicago (5-4) did get a strong effort from Epiphanny Prince, who was playing her second game of the season after sitting out the first seven games because of burnout. Prince had 18 points for the Sky, who have dropped three straight.

Camille Little added 13 points and Sue Bird had 12 for the Storm (4-6).
