    Wings face Mercury without key starter

    Dallas outrebounded the Phoenix Mercury by 24 in their first meeting of the season, but the Wings head into Saturday night's rematch without starter Courtney Paris. The 6-foot-4 center suffered a knee injury in a victory over San Antonio on Thursday night and is expected to be out six to eight weeks. Paris, who led the league in rebounding in 2014 and 2015, is averaging 5.0 points and 4.3 rebounds this season.
