We'll update these depth charts throughout the season to account for transactions, news, injuries, and rotation changes, so be sure to keep this article bookmarked.


  • PG - Aari McDonald, Haley Jones, Danielle Robinson

  • SG - Allisha Gray, Taylor Mikesell

  • SF - Rhyne Howard, AD Durr

  • PF - Nia Coffey, Naz Hillmon, Laeticia Amihere

  • C - Cheyenne Parker, Monique Billings

Danielle Robinson is anticipating a return before the All-Star Break, but Aari McDonald has likely earned a permanent starting role at point guard. Cheyenne Parker leads the team in points and rebounds per game. Nia Coffey is averaging 18.2 minutes per game, with Monique Billings and Naz Hillmon rounding out the frontcourt rotation off the bench. Rookie Laeticia Amihere has not been in the rotation.


  • PG - Marina Mabrey, Dana Evans

  • SG - Courtney Williams, Rebekah Gardner

  • SF - Kahleah Copper, Robyn Parks

  • PF - Morgan Bertsch, Alanna Smith, Sika Koné, Isabelle Harrison, Ruthy Hebard

  • C - Elizabeth Williams, Kristine Anigwe

Marina Mabrey started the season at point guard next to veteran Courtney Williams, and they've quickly developed a real chemistry. Rookie Morgan Bertsch will continue to start at power forward while with Alanna Smith coming off the bench behind her. Isabelle Harrison underwent successful surgery to repair a torn left meniscus and will be out indefinitely.


  • PG - Natisha Hiedeman, Tyasha Harris

  • SG - Tiffany Hayes, Leigha Brown, DiJonai Carrington

  • SF - DeWanna Bonner, Rebecca Allen

  • PF - Alyssa Thomas, Olivia Nelson-Odoba

  • C - Brionna Jones, Liz Dixon

The starting lineup is locked in but Connecticut has been working to determine the end of their rotation during training camp. Former LSU guard and No. 22 pick Alexis Morris was waived following her first preseason game with the team, while the team ensured a roster spot for third-year guard DiJonai Carrington by exercising her contract option for next season. The team finalized their backcourt depth by extending the contract of Tyasha Harris, waiving second-year guard Nia Clouden, and trading for Leigha Brown.


  • PG - Veronica Burton, Crystal Dangerfield, Odyssey Sims

  • SG - Arike Ogunbowale, Jasmine Dickey, Ashley Joens

  • SF - Satou Sabally, Maddy Siegrist, Diamond DeShields

  • PF - Natasha Howard, Lou Lopez Sénéchal

  • C - Teaira McCowan, Awak Kuier, Kalani Brown

The team announced that DeShields could be out for most of the season, and that rookie Lopez Sénéchal will be sidelined 6-8 weeks after knee surgery. Maddy Siegrist will have a big opportunity for rotation minutes coming off the bench in their absences. After a strong camp, Awak Kuier won the backup PF/C job and could see a bigger role rather soon as the team announced Teaira McCowan will miss most of the month of June to fulfill an obligation competing in Turkey.


  • PG - Erica Wheeler, Grace Berger

  • SG - Kelsey Mitchell, Kristy Wallace, Maya Caldwell

  • SF - Lexie Hull, Victoria Vivians, Victaria Saxton

  • PF - NaLyssa Smith, Emma Cannon

  • C - Aliyah Boston, Queen Egbo

While this team is extremely youthful, the combination of Aliyah Boston, Kelsey Mitchell, and NaLyssa Smith provide the Fever with a solid core of players moving forward. Boston and Smith will be backed up by Emma Cannon and Queen Egbo, giving Indiana a very capable set of reserve frontcourt players. Destanni Henderson was cut in camp, leaving Grace Berger, Kristy Wallace, and Maya Caldwell to compete for the Fever's backup guard minutes.


  • PG - Chelsea Gray, Riquna Williams

  • SG - Kelsey Plum, Sydney Colson

  • SF - Jackie Young, Kierstan Bell

  • PF - Candace Parker, Alysha Clark

  • C - A’ja Wilson, Kiah Stokes, Cayla George

The Aces bolstered their championship core with the addition of 2-time MVP Candace Parker and veteran Alysha Clark. Parker will start alongside 2022 MVP A’ja Wilson in the frontcourt, while the rest of the 2022 starting lineup of Kelsey Plum, Jackie Young, and Finals MVP Chelsea Gray remains intact. Alysha Clark and Kiah Stokes have solidified backup roles in the Aces' frontcourt.


  • PG - Jordin Canada, Zia Cooke, Jasmine Thomas

  • SG - Lexie Brown, Nia Clouden

  • SF - Layshia Clarendon, Karlie Samuelson, Katie Lou Samuelson

  • PF - Nneka Ogwumike, Dearica Hamby

  • C - Chiney Ogwumike, Azurá Stevens

With Jasmine Thomas (knee) out to begin the season, the Sparks have deployed a starting lineup of Jordin Canada, Lexie Brown, Layshia Clarendon, Chiney Ogwumike, and Nneka Ogwumike. Katie Lou Samuelson (pregnancy) will miss the 2023 season.


  • PG - Tiffany Mitchell, Lindsay Allen

  • SG - Kayla McBride, Rachel Banham

  • SF - Diamond Miller, Bridget Carleton, Aerial Powers

  • PF - Napheesa Collier, Dorka Juhász, Nikolina Milic

  • C - Jessica Shepard, Natalie Achonwa

Tiffany Mitchell has overtaken Lindsay Allen for the starting point guard spot, and Kayla McBride has been the backcourt's primary scorer. The team runs the offense, however, through captain Napheesa Collier, while Jessica Shepard and rookie Dorka Juhász start in the frontcourt.


  • PG - Courtney Vandersloot, Marine Johannès

  • SG - Sabrina Ionescu, Jocelyn Willoughby

  • SF - Betnijah Laney, Kayla Thornton

  • PF - Breanna Stewart, Nyara Sabally

  • C - Jonquel Jones, Stefanie Dolson, Han Xu

The Liberty have been easing in their new Big 3 during camp in order to manage risk, so those players haven't seen a ton of action. Stefanie Dolson and Han Xu will continue to compete for backup center minutes behind Jonquel Jones. Backup guard Epiphanny Prince was waived on Wednesday, but will reportedly be brought back on a hardship contract ahead of the season opener on Friday. The team qualifies for the hardship contract since Marine Johannès has not joined the team yet due to overseas commitments.


  • PG - Moriah Jefferson, Shey Peddy, Evina Westbrook

  • SG - Diana Taurasi, Sug Sutton, Skylar Diggins-Smith

  • SF - Sophie Cunningham, Kadi Sissoko

  • PF - Michaela Onyenwere, Brianna Turner

  • C - Brittney Griner, Megan Gustafson

Skylar Diggins-Smith is not with the team to start the season while on maternity leave and Shey Peddy has not played any preseason minutes as the team has been cautious with her return from her Achilles injury. Moriah Jefferson, who signed with the team as a free agent in February, will be featured heavily in the backcourt with Diana Taurasi, who will enter her 19th season.


  • PG - Yvonne Turner, Sami Whitcomb, Jade Melbourne

  • SG - Jewell Loyd, Arella Guirantes

  • SF - Kia Nurse, Ivana Dojkić

  • PF - Ezi Magbegor, Kaila Charles, Jordan Horston

  • C - Mercedes Russell, Dulcy Fankam Mendjiadeu

The point guard position is one to watch as veterans Sami Whitcomb and Yvonne Turner compete, while the team hopes Jade Melbourne can eventually earn it for herself. Seattle waived the No. 18 overall pick, Madi Williams, and third-year forward Jasmine Walker, making the frontcourt depth a little clearer behind Mercedes Russell and Ezi Magbegor. The team made it clear its focus is on developing youth after announcing veteran Theresa Plaisance would be their final cut.


  • PG - Natasha Cloud, Kristi Toliver

  • SG - Ariel Atkins, Shatori Walker-Kimbrough, Li Meng

  • SF - Brittney Sykes, Myisha Hines-Allen

  • PF - Elena Delle Donne, Tianna Hawkins

  • C - Shakira Austin, Amanda Zahui B.

The timeline of Myisha Hines-Allen remains uncertain as she participates in practices but remains without a timetable to play. Otherwise, the Mystics lineup is set with a healthy Elena Delle Donne and Shakira Austin returning to the starting frontcourt, while Natasha Cloud and Ariel Atkins are back alongside new addition Brittany Sykes. Amanda Zahui B. should see the majority of frontcourt minutes off the bench until Hines-Allen returns.
