As we enter our 3rd week of the WNBA season, we have seen a series of personnel changes as coaches and GMs have had some time to evaluate rosters and make some changes whether it be chemistry or injury related.

 

EASTERN CONFERENCE:

Atlanta Dream: Courtney Paris was waived last night, as the Dream signed journey women Jessica Moore. Paris’ fate was most likely sealed before the Chicago game as she did not play against the Sky, despite the game going to overtime, and Atlanta’s less than stellar bench.

Chicago Sky: Ticha Penicheiro is set to come back from injury after being out to start the season. As Nate Parham of Swish Appeal discussed today, Penicheiro has historically been a good distributor,  a quality needed for the turnover prone Sky. Pokey Chatman has explained that they did not want to rush Ticha back from injury and are taking it slow with the longtime veteran.

Connecticut Sun: No personnel changes

Indiana Fever: No personnel changes

New York Liberty: No personnel changes

Washington Mystics: No personnel changes
