Mystics' Brittney Sykes out at least 2 weeks with sprained foot

Washington Mystics guard Brittney Sykes has a left foot sprain and will be re-evaluated in two weeks, head coach Eric Thibault told the Washington Post on Friday.

The injury, which Sykes suffered in Tuesday's win over the Atlanta Dream, is different from the left ankle injury that forced Sykes to miss 10 games this season, Thibault said.

Sykes appeared to tweak her left foot early in the fourth quarter Tuesday after an awkward step. Afterward, she was seen going down a hallway on crutches, but the Mystics said they were precautionary.

Despite playing just 14 minutes, Sykes scored 18 points to help lead the Mystics over the Dream, 87-68, for their first win of the season.

An eight-year veteran, Sykes, 30, is averaging 11.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game this season.

The Mystics host the Chicago Sky on Friday.
