The WNBA regular season heats up as the league settles in after its opening week.
Dallas Wings vs. Washington Mystics
Friday at 7 p.m. ET on NBC Sports app
Fresh off their win over the Las Vegas Aces, the Mystics host the Wings. The squad will hope to keep its perfect 3-0 start to the season going, led by Elena Delle Donne and Myisha Hines-Allen, while Natasha Cloud is sidelined in the healthy and safety protocols.
The Wings’ offense was quiet in their season opener against the Atlanta Dream, with Arike Ogunbowale held to single digits. Dallas will look to get Ogunbowale and others involved as the team aims to turn its offense around.
Las Vegas Aces vs. Atlanta Dream
Friday at 7:30 p.m. ET on Bally Sports Southeast
It’s been all things Rhyne Howard for the Atlanta Dream as the No. 1 draft pick has propelled her team to a 2-0 start. Howard and Atlanta will host a red-hot Aces side on Friday, putting the rookie to the test.

Indiana Fever vs. New York Liberty
Friday at 8 p.m. ET on Twitter, YES, Indiana Fever Facebook page
The Liberty will host the Fever at the Barclays Center in a Commissioner’s Cup fixture.
Didi Richards has been ruled as probable for the matchup in what would be her 2022 debut with New York. Her side will need her as the Liberty is coming off a 33-point loss to the Chicago Sky and needs to put on a solid performance against an exciting, young Fever squad led by rookie Destanni Henderson.
Phoenix Mercury vs. Seattle Storm
Saturday at 3 p.m. ET on ABC
Seattle will be looking for redemption on Saturday after the Mercury defeated the Storm 97-77 on Wednesday night.
The Storm was without Breanna Stewart due to health and safety protocols and struggled to contain Tina Charles and Skylar Diggins, who notched 22 points and 19 points, respectively.
Saturday will be the second of three regular-season meetings between longtime rivals and friends Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi in what is speculated to be Bird’s last WNBA season.
Los Angeles Sparks vs. Connecticut Sun
Saturday at 7 p.m. ET on Facebook
The Sparks will travel east to take on the Connecticut Sun at Mohegan Sun Arena. The Sun will aim to notch their first win of the season after falling in their opener to the Liberty.
Los Angeles, however, will be a formidable opponent with Liz Cambage providing an interesting counter to Connecticut forward Jonquel Jones.

Chicago Sky vs. Minnesota Lynx
Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on NBA TV
Minnesota will host reigning WNBA champion Chicago after registering three straight losses to start the season. The Lynx have endured a considerable amount of roster shifts, with the team signing guard Moriah Jefferson ahead of Saturday’s game.
The Sky enter their Minnesota matchup on the heels of a commanding 33-point victory over the Liberty.
Dallas Wings vs. New York Liberty
Sunday at 2 p.m. ET on YES Network app, Bally Sports Southwest Extra
The Wings and the Liberty have been cold in their previous games, so both teams will be looking to get their offenses going.
In Dallas’ regular-season opener, Marina Mabrey and Allisha Gray scored in the double figures, with Isabella Harrison and Arike Ogunbowale held to six and eight points, respectively.
New York shot 33.3 percent from the field and 13.3 percent from beyond the arc in Wednesday’s loss to the Sky.
Indiana Fever vs. Atlanta Dream
Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on Amazon Prime
Sunday’s Commissioner’s Cup contest between Indiana and Atlanta will be a battle of the rookies.
Rhyne Howard has been lighting up the court for the Dream, while Destanni Henderson has led the Fever like a seasoned guard in her first season with the team.
