Notes: Phoenix posts Charde Houston and Candice Dupree had to undergo knee surgery, joining Penny Taylor (knee) on the sideline. ... Olympian Diana Taurasi did not travel to Seattle for Thursday's game due to a late return from the London Games. She's played in only two WNBA games this season, suffering an early hip injury. ... On the Storm side, Olympian Lauren Jackson won't return to Seattle until Monday, missing at least two games. She was booked to return to Seattle with Sue Bird, but after being named flag bearer for her native Australia, her obligations to the national team changed.
