Numbers To Know: West All-Star Reserves and Replacements

With the Tuesday announcement of the All-Star reserves and the Wednesday announcement of the replacements for injured All-Stars that will be unable to participate, we now know everyone that is headed to Seattle for this weekend’s festivities.

After breaking down the starting lineups for the East and West last week, now we look at the reserves and replacement players and offer some key stats that helped them earn their All-Star nod. We examine a combination of traditional stats, advanced metrics and play type data from Synergy to share some key numbers to know for this year’s All-Stars.

Notes: All stats are through games played on July 19. For advanced metrics (eFG%, TS%, REB%, USG%, NetRtg, etc.), ranking are based on players that have played at least 500 total possessions. For play type metrics (Post Ups, Spot Ups, Isolations, Pick & Rolls, etc), ranking are based on players that have played at least 10 possessions in that specific play type, unless otherwise noted.

Seimone Augustus, Minnesota Lynx

Skylar Diggins-Smith, Dallas Wings

Chelsea Gray, Los Angeles Sparks

Brittney Griner, Phoenix Mercury (unable to play due to injury)

Nneka Ogwumike, Los Angeles Sparks
