ATLANTA -- Forward Sancho Lyttle missed the Atlanta Dream's game against Connecticut on Wednesday night with aftereffects of a concussion sustained last week.

The All-Star selection was injured in the closing minutes of a home loss to Chicago on Saturday when Sky center Sylvia Fowles elbowed Lyttle's left cheekbone.

Lyttle was diagnosed with a concussion after the game. Dream coach Marynell Meadors listed Lyttle as day to day.

Alison Bales made her first start of the season against the Sun.

Lyttle, who has averaged 14.2 points and 10.6 rebounds, is tied with teammate Erika DeSouza with nine double-doubles, second-most in the WNBA.
