Mercury's Taurasi to miss rest of regular season

Quick Summary

Diana Taurasi will miss the remainder of the WNBA regular season with a quad strain, the Phoenix Mercury announced Monday.

ESPN's BPI gave the Mercury a 67.5% chance of making the playoffs -- second-best of the six teams in the hunt -- before the news of Taurasi's season-ending injury.

On Saturday, both Taurasi and Diggins-Smith missed the must-win game against the Liberty where the Mercury ultimately pulled off a 76-62 upset.
