What happened to

The Phoenix Mercury announced Thursday that Skylar Diggins-Smith will miss the final two regular-season games of this season. Mercury has also suspended her contract, so she will not return in 2022, even if the team makes the playoffs.


Moving into Thursday night’s game, Phoenix are in a four-way tie at 14-20 in the standings, with five teams vying for the final two playoff spots. The Los Angeles Sparks, who play on Thursday, will end in defeat. Phoenix ends the season hosting the Dallas Wings on Friday and the Chicago Sky on Sunday. Since winning the franchise’s second title in 2009, Mercury has missed the playoffs just once in 2012.

But the 2022 Mercury has been a very difficult one under first-year head coach Vanessa Nygaard, starting with Brittany Griner’s detention in Russia in February. Diggins-Smith and Diana Taurasi clashed on the bench in May, Tina Charles left the team in June, Diggins-Smith used a clown emoji on Twitter in July with an explicit reference to Nygard, Taurasi is currently in the quad. Diggins-Smith is out with an injury and is now out for the season.

Somehow, the Mercury still has a chance in the playoffs. What will it take to make Phoenix postseason, and what does the future look like for Mercury and Diggins-Smith? We take a look.
