SEATTLE (AP) -- Seattle Storm forward Lauren Jackson is out indefinitely with a stress fracture in her lower back.

"Lauren has been playing with back pain for a couple of weeks," Storm coach Brian Agler said before Saturday night's game against the Atlanta Dream. "She will rest and work with our team physicians and trainers to rehabilitate her back." Jackson had a bone scan Friday that revealed the stress fracture, Agler said. He said it's doubtful Jackson will travel with the team for a three-game roadtrip that starts Tuesday at New York.

Jackson had 17 points and played 29 minutes as the Storm (17-11) beat the Connecticut Sun 86-74 on Thursday to clinch a sixth consecutive playoff berth. Jackson is the Storm's leading scorer averaging 19.2 points.
