Atlanta Dream at Dallas Wings, 1pm ET

Dream Injury Report: Monique Billings (ankle) is QUESTIONABLE. Iliana Rupert (overseas) is OUT.

Dream Confirmed Lineup: Aari McDonald, Allisha Gray, Rhyne Howard, Nia Coffey, Cheyenne Parker

Wings Injury Report: Diamond DeShields (knee), Lou Lopez Senechal (knee) are OUT.

Wings Confirmed Lineup: Veronica Burton, Arike Ogunbowale, Satou Sabally, Natasha Howard, Teaira McCowan

Allisha Gray will make her first regular season start for the Dream, as she’ll debut against the team she's been on for her entire career. If Monique Billings is ultimately ruled out, expect Naz Hillmon and Laeticia Amihere to pick up more minutes at the forward spots. For the Wings, Satou Sabally will draw the start with Diamond DeShields sidelined. Head coach Latricia Trammell also mentioned Maddy Siegrist as a candidate for more playing time.

Las Vegas Aces at Seattle Storm, 3pm ET

Aces Injury Report: Riquna Williams (back) is OUT.

Aces Confirmed Lineup: Chelsea Gray, Kelsey Plum, Jackie Young, Candace Parker, A’ja Wilson

Storm Injury Report: None reported

Storm Confirmed Lineup: Yvonne Turner, Jewell Loyd, Kia Nurse, Ezi Magbegor, Mercedes Russell

Last year’s champion Aces will start their 2023 campaign against a new-look Storm team. Las Vegas managed to add Candace Parker who will immediately slide into what was an already great starting lineup. Meanwhile, the Storm are coping with the loss of numerous players, but none more crucial than Breanna Stewart and Sue Bird. New additions Kia Nurse and Sami Whitcomb will likely start. However, Seattle has a plethora of backup guards that will likely see the floor, including Yvonne Turner and Jordan Horston.
