Shock Open Postseason Against Atlanta

Finishing with a record of 18-16, the Shock will play the Atlanta Dream in the first round of the WNBA Playoffs. The league has yet to release a playoff schedule for the Eastern Conference.

Injury update: guard-forward Alexis Hornbuckle is day-to-day with a strained hamstring but is expected to be in the starting lineup of Game 1 vs. Atlanta; guard-forward Katie Smith's status (back pain) remains up in the air; forward Plenette Pierson (shoulder) will not be playing in the postseason.
