Mercury guard Skylar Diggins-Smith out for the remainder of the season for 'personal reasons'

Skylar Diggins-Smith will miss the remainder of the WNBA regular season for personal reasons.

The 5-foot-9 guard averaged 19.7 points and 5.5 assists per game on 42.9 percent shooting from the field this season.

Diggins-Smith had already missed the two most recent games.

The team has also had to deal with the Brittney Griner situation.

The Mercury have lost four out of their last five games since July 31.Phoenix has two more games remaining.
