Temeka Johnson, Washington Mystics
The odds-of favorite to win the Rookie of the Year award, Johnson was an immediate starter that makes her teammates better and can score consistently. Her 9.3 ppg and 5.3 apg is tops among all rookies, and she is actually second in the WNBA in assists.

Chelsea Newton, Sacramento Monarchs
Newton was a surprise starter for the Monarchs this season, but did all of the little things for the best team in the west. She has gone on to start every game, avraging 21.0 mpg, 4.1 ppg, 2.0 rpg and 1.6 apg, among the rookie leaders in each of these categories

Tan White, Indiana Fever
White exploded out of the gate and had a tremendous June. She earned a starting role ten or so games into the season and has not looked back, compiling a highlight reel of plays and averaging 7.5 ppg in 21.6 mpg

Tanisha Wright, Seattle Storm
Not asked to make a major contribution on the offensive front, Wright has stepped into the rotation this year and made her presence felt on defense. When Betty Lennox and Sue Bird each missed time, Wright filled in and the Storm kept on winning.
