NEW YORK (AP) — Nneka Oguwmike, Brittney Griner and Breanna Stewart headline the Western Conference WNBA All-Star reserves.
The trio will be joined by Skylar Diggins-Smith, Chelsea Gray and Seimone Augustus on Saturday in Seattle at the league’s All-Star contest. Griner won’t play after injuring her ankle and knee last week and will be replaced by WNBA President Lisa Borders.
Connecticut’s Alyssa Thomas will give the Sun three All-Stars as she was announced as a reserve on Tuesday. Atlanta teammates Layshia Clarendon and Elizabeth Williams will also be in Seattle as well as Indiana’s Candice Dupree and Chicago’s Allie Quigley and Stefanie Dolson.
Borders will also have to name a replacement for Elena Delle Donne, who is out with a sprained ankle.
Six of the reserves will be playing in their first All-Star Game.
