Chicago Sky guard Cappie Pondexter will sit out Friday against the New York Liberty.
Pondexter will not play because she’s still under the WNBA’s concussion protocol, but she is expected to return within the next seven day, according to the team.
Pondexter started having concussion-like symptoms July 8.
The 34-year-old veteran is the team’s most experienced player. She has 12 years in the league under he belt and this is her third year with the Sky. Pondexter is averaging 12 points and 5.9 assists per game this season.
The Sky are 5-12 this season. The team recorded its first back-to-back wins this week, beating the Minnesota Lynx by more than 20 points Saturday and defeating the Dallas Wings Wednesday.
The Sky look to keep their momentum rolling without Pondexter when they face the Liberty Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Madison Square Garden.
