Washington Mystics point guard Natasha Cloud is “good to go” for Game 1 at the Seattle Storm on Thursday night, coach Mike Thibault confirmed.

Cloud, who averaged a career-high 10.7 points and a league-leading 7.0 assists per game during the regular season, left Sunday’s game against the Indiana Fever with a knee injury.

“She did about two-thirds of the practice today,” Thibault said Tuesday. “A lot more than we thought she might. We were going to try to rest or a little bit more but she felt good enough to do more. So she is good to go.”

Cloud, 30, won a WNBA championship with the Mystics in 2019 and owns career postseason averages of 8.6 points and 4.2 rebounds in 26 games (20 starts).

Games 1 and 2 of the best-of-three first-round series are in Seattle. Game 3, if necessary, will be in Washington, D.C., on Aug. 24.
