Reserve forward Rhonda Mapp was not at Staples Center on Thursday as the Sparks routed Minnesota, 88-65, before 8,784. WNBA officials notified the team that she was being disciplined for an undisclosed infraction.

vs. Charlotte, 5 Channel 9 * Site--Great Western Forum. * Radio--KPLS (830). * Records--Sparks 5-2, Sting 1-7. * Update--Charlotte, the WNBA's attendance laggard (7,081 per game) last season, now has a new problem: a bad team. The Sting is having to go the distance with sore-kneed Dawn Staley at the point, wing Andrea Stinson and Rhonda Mapp inside. Stinson is among the league leaders in scoring and Mapp is a top-10 rebounder. But there's little help elsewhere.
