WNBA Podcast: 2011 SLAM Magazine Projections (No. 5)

WNBA.com's Frank Della Femina and SLAM Magazine's Ben York discuss the latest addition to SLAM's Top 20 WNBA Player Projections for the 2011 season.

No. 5 on the list busted out of the gate early for the Los Angeles Sparks last season, as she recorded seven double-doubles over the first 10 games. Unfortunately it ended there, when a June 13th shoulder injury cut her 2010 season short. Currently playing overseas in Russia, she's had plenty of time to rehab and is expected to make a strong return in 2011.

Make room on the list for Los Angeles' Candace Parker. Read Ben's SLAM Online piece.
