The Phoenix Mercury will be without one of their stars when they try to wrap up the WNBA Finals Friday in Chicago.

Griner originally suffered an eye injury in Game 2 of the series. She also suffered a chipped tooth and bloodied lip during the game, which Phoenix won 97-68.

The second-year pro has averaged 15.5 points, 6 rebounds and 6 blocks in two games during this series, and is averaging 16.7 points, 6 rebounds and 3.4 blocks per game during the playoffs.

Game three of the best-of-five series, which the Mercury lead 2-0, will tip off at 5:00 p.m. at Allstate Arena. It can be watched on ESPN 2.
