Rookie Diamond Miller in walking boot as Lynx try and end 5-game losing streak to start year
A belief that this would be a rebuild year for the Lynx is coming to fruition. Stuck in last place, the Lynx are off to an 0-5 start this season.
Making matters worse is the news that second overall pick and rookie forward Diamond Miller will be out for at least Thursday’s game with a right ankle injury. We spotted her at Thursday morning’s shoot-around ahead of the game vs. Connecticut on crutches and in a walking boot.
We spoke with forward Napheesa Collier and guard Tiffany Mitchell on Thursday morning about the difficulties of starting 0-5, Mitchell’s role as the starting point guard, and more.

The Lynx lost at Dallas on Tuesday in their last game. It was that night in the first half that Miller suffered her ankle injury.
