Two days after announcing that F Shameka Christon would miss significant time with a knee injury, the Chicago Sky have waived Christon, as WNBA rosters were due at 2:00pm EST.

“It’s an unfortunate set of circumstances, yet it’s the nature and reality of sports,” said Pokey Chatman.

Yesterday, Chicago traded for Sparks F Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton.

The Chicago Sky have acquired F Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton from the Los Angeles Sparks for a 2nd-round draft pick. Wisdom-Hylton returns home to Illinois where she played high school basketball and college in the Big-10 at the neighboring Purdue.

This deal makes a lot of sense for both parties involved. The Sparks already have great depth and talent in the front court where playing time was going to be difficult to come by for Lindsay while Chicago just lost F Shameka Christon for an extended period of time.

With Candace Parker only appearing in 10 games for the Sparks last season, Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton averaged 4.5 pts, 3.4 reb, in 15 min per game last season.

The Chicago Sky announced that forward Shameka Christon will miss time with a knee injury. She is expected to miss at least eight weeks according the Chicago Tribune report.

“It is unfortunate that we won’t have Shameka to start the season,” Sky coach Pokey Chatman said in a statement. “We will assist her in her recovery in any way we can. In the meantime, I am confident that our team will continue to prepare and work hard so we are ready on June 4.”
