The Lynx have been fortunate, as most key players haven't had injury problems this season. However, there are questions regarding the fitness of Diamond Miller, who has been upgraded from "out" to "doubtful".

It could be a 50/50 call whether she's able to play on Tuesday. But it's possible to see Miller on the bench, as coach Cheryl Reeve might not risk the in-form forward exacerbating her severe. The rest of the squad should be ready to go for their sixth final and first cup final of the Reeve era.
