The Atlanta Dream will visit the Chicago Sky for a matinee showdown in the WNBA on Wednesday. The Dream will look to snap a four-game losing streak, while the Sky look to improve to improve to 9-12 ahead of a busy week for the team.

The Sky are coming off an 84-71 loss to the Seattle Storm. Chennedy Carter has paved the way for them, scoring 16.5 points per game. Rookie star Angel Reese is adding 14.1 points and 11.9 rebounds per game.

The Dream, on the other hand, have won just one of their last seven contests. They’re led by Allisha Gray, who is averaging 16.1 points per game.

The road ahead doesn’t look much better, with the Las Vegas Aces, Seattle Storm, and Minnesota Lynx — three of the league's hottest teams — up next after Chicago.

Atlanta Dream vs Chicago Sky: Injury reports

Chicago Sky injury report

The Sky come into this game missing just one player, starting Center Elizabeth Williams, who is out for the remainder of the year with a torn meniscus. Her absence paves the way for the rookie frontcourt of Angel Reese and Kamilla Cardoso.

Atlanta Dream injury report

The Dream are without two key starters going into the matchup. Guard Rhyne Howard, who’s scored 15.4 points per game this season, is still out indefinitely after suffering an ankle injury two weeks ago. Fellow guard Jordin Canada has a broken finger and will be out until at least the Olympic break this summer.

Atlanta Dream vs Chicago Sky: Key Matchups

Chennedy Carter vs Allisha Gray

There are a few guarantees in this matchup, one being that the paint will be clogged with the likes of Reese, Cardoso, and Dream center Tina Charles. With so much commotion going on inside, look to the perimeter to see who can pace their team shooting between star guards Chennedy Carter and Allisha Gray.

Chennedy has been hot lately, averaging 26.6 points per game over her last three, while Gray simply needs to step up for the depleted Dream team desperate for a win. They've dropped six of their last seven games and are missing two key starters to help carry the load.

Gray has scored 19 in three straight games while shooting over 50 percent, so it may be time for her to start being even more aggressive and shoot the Dream to a sneaky win.

They have a fearsome schedule ahead of them, with the Las Vegas Aces, Seattle Storm, and New York Liberty up next.
