WASHINGTON (AP) - Chicago's Elena Delle Donne suffered a concussion Wednesday and is questionable for the All-Star game this weekend.

Delle Donne fell to the court while going for a loose ball against Washington and left the game with about a minute left in the third quarter. She didn't return and the Sky lost 82-78.

``She's not nauseous now,'' said Sky coach Pokey Chatman, who confirmed the injury after the Mystics' team doctor examined Delle Donne. ``She's groggy, headache...moving gingerly. Hopefully she'll be OK.''

Chicago is off until after the All-Star break. Delle Donne might be as well.

``The WNBA has their rules,'' Chatman said. ``It's unfortunate, obviously for her, for us and also for Saturday. We have to make sure she gets back to healthy.''

Mystics coach Mike Thibault thought Delle Donne's head hit the knee of a Mystics player while going for the loose ball. The 6-foot-5 star scored 12 points, going 2 for 15 from the field.

Delle Donne, the WNBA's third leading scorer at 18.6 points per game, is the first rookie to lead the All-Star voting.
