Thumb injury sidelines Sky's Delle Donne for second round

ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) Sky star Elena Delle Donne will miss Chicago's second-round playoff game against the Atlanta Dream because of a right thumb injury.

The 2015 WNBA MVP, Delle Donne was injured Sept. 7 against Washington and had surgery six days later. She is averaging 21.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game.

The Sky still clinched the No. 4 seed and a first-round bye without her. They host Atlanta on Sunday.
