Which WNBA teams will be hurting most as players participate in EuroBasket 2019?
In the latest episode of the Locked On Women’s Basketball WNBA Podcast, host Ben Dull is joined by Jenn Hatfield of High Post Hoops and Her Hoop Stats to discuss her two-part piece on WNBA players participating in EuroBasket and how those absences will affect individual teams and the playoff picture.
Topics discussed in the episode include:
- the Mystics without Emma Meesseman and idea of introducing her back into the starting lineup upon her return
- the Liberty playing without one-third of their roster, Amanda Zahui B’s 37-point performance earlier this month against the Sparks and our current view of her as an impact WNBA starter
- Maria Vadeeva’s importance as a shooter and playmaker for the spacing-challenged Sparks and how she might fare in a three-big starting lineup upon her return to L.A.
- Glory Johnson’s importance as a veteran leader and starter for the Wings and head coach Brian Agler’s remarks on how some players negotiate their EuroBasket departure dates
