The WNBA All-Star game less than one month away, and fan voting for the 10 starters is open through June 20.
Just Women’s Sports has one deserving candidate from each team to keep an eye on during the voting process. Fans can vote online once per day.
As a rookie, Rhyne Howard leads the Dream with 16.2 points per game. She’s also adding 3.9 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game.
While Jonquel Jones is putting up big numbers, Alyssa Thomas has been an all-around threat for the Sun. She’s averaging 14.9 points per game and a team-leading 8.8 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.8 steals per game.
This one may be an obvious choice. On top of putting up her second triple-double of her career this season, Candace Parker currently leads the Sky with 12.3 points and 8.7 rebounds per game.
Satou Sabally has been a steady presence for the Wings, scoring 11.8 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. She’s second on the team in rebounds behind Kayla Thornton, who has 7.8.
While Queen Egbo isn’t the biggest scorer on the Fever, she is making her impact felt in other ways. She leads the team in rebounds (7.3), steals (1.2) and blocks (1.5). She also has one of the lowest assist to turnover ratios on the team at 0.6.
Kelsey Plum has been making the most of her starting spot in the lineup and proving she’s no longer the Sixth Woman of the Year for the Aces. Plum is averaging 19.8 points per game, which is good for second in the league behind Seattle’s Breanna Stewart (who has played just eight games to Plum’s 12).
A top 10 scorer in the league, Nneka Ogwumike leads the Sparks with 18.1 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. She’s also been adding 1.5 steals per game.
Sylvia Fowles is one of the few players this season averaging a double-double on the season, with 17.1 points and 10.6 rebounds per game. She also leads the Lynx in steals (1.5) and blocks (1.3).
Natasha Howard ranks first on the Liberty in rebounds (6.5), steals (1.6) and blocks (1.1) She’s also putting up 14.4 points per game.
While there is no shortage of talent on the Mercury, Skylar Diggins-Smith is the team’s leader in points (18.4) and assists (4.6). She’s also adding 1.6 steals per night, which is tied for the team lead.
While the Storm could no doubt have more than one All-Star, Breanna Stewart should be at the top of the list. Not only does she lead the team, she also leads the league in points with 20.4 per game. She’s also adding a team-high 7.0 rebounds and 2.9 steals per game.
Elena Delle Donne has been making a splash in her first full season back in the league, averaging 17.5 points per game through eight games played. She’s also adding 6.8 rebounds and 1.3 blocks.
