It could also mark the debut of their top rookie star, Kelsey Plum, who missed the first two games due to injury. Here's the latest Phoenix Mercury vs. San Antonio Stars preview including game odds, time, and how to watch it live online or TV.

They opened with a 73-64 loss to the Liberty and then suffered an 89-74 loss to the Mystics. In each of those games, they were without rookie Kelsey Plum due to an ankle injury. It appears there's a chance Plum could be on the court for tonight's opener. However, the Stars are also without Kayla McBride, which adds to the team's troubles in trying to get a win. However, McBride is not injured, but participating in the Turkish League championship best-of-five series with her team Yakin Dogu.

In their first game of the season, the Phoenix Mercury lost at home 68-58 to the visiting Dallas Wings. The next home game was a much different performance as they routed the Indiana Fever 85-62. Center Brittney Griner had 32 points along with 10 rebounds. Her points total marked a career-high. Teammate Diana Taurasi also made history in that game, becoming the only WNBA player to have 7,000 points, 1,500 rebounds, and 1,500 assists.
