Angel McCoughtry will be the only player representing the Atlanta Dream in Saturday's WNBA All-Star game. The WNBA announced the reserves for the game during Tuesday's nationally televised game between the Seattle Storm and the Chicago Sky.
The Eastern Conference reserves are highlighted by the WNBA's leading scorer Sylvia Fowles. She is joined on the team by her teammates Epiphanny Prince and rookie point guard Courtney Vandersloot. Connecticut's Renee Montgomery, New York's Essence Carson, and Washington's Crystal Langhorne round out the Eastern squad.
The Minnesota Lynx were rewarded by their excellent start to the season landing three players on the Western Conference reserve list. Lindsey Whalen, Seimone Augustus, and Rebekkah Brunson all will be making the trip to San Antonio. Phoenix's Penny Taylor will also join San Antonio's Becky Hammon and Danielle Adams as Western Conference reserves.
Candace Parker was voted in to start for the Western Conference but will be forced to miss the game due to a knee injury. The WNBA will replace Parker on the roster and Western Conference head coach Brian Agler will make the decision on who gets the starting nod. An early favorite for the spot will be Minnesota's Rebekkah Brunson who is leading the WNBA in rebounding.
