WNBA President Laurel Richie will select replacements for those who can’t play due to injury: Diggins, Augustus and Whalen.

League coaches who voted on the reserves got it absolutely right. Pondexter, Bonner, Bentley, Bone, Dolson and Ogwumike were obvious. It’s nice to see Pierson get her due after all these years. And it’s cool that Coleman has found a fit with the Fever.

Looking forward to Saturday’s game.
