Erika de Souza: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

August 12, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

de Souza (lower leg) will be sidelined for Saturday's contest against the Dream.

de Souza, who missed Thursday's contest after suffering a bone bruise to her leg during a practice, will remain sidelined Saturday. Dearica Hamby and Kayla Alexander will likely remain the main candidates to see additional run.

August 9, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

de Souza will not participate during Thursday's matchup against the Sky after suffering a bone bruise to her lower right leg during Tuesday's practice.

The seriousness of the injury hasn't been disclosed, though the fact that the team is ruling her out for just one game is a good sign. She plays just a hair over 12 minutes per game, so her absence likely won't throw a wrench into the Stars' gameplan. It's possible that players such as Dearica Hamby and Kayla Alexander could see additional run as a result, though. de Souza should be considered questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Dream.

July 28, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

de Souza will come off the bench for Friday's matchup against the Sparks, with Dearica Hamby drawing the start in her stead, Doug Feinberg of the Associated Press reports.

de Souza has started 20 of the 21 games she's appeared in, though has garnered an inconsistent workload of 14.4 minutes per game. As a result, the move to the bench may not affect her fantasy value too much, as her 4.2 points and 3.0 rebounds per game put her at the bottom of the barrel anyway.

July 24, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Souza is averaging 4.2 points and 3.0 rebounds across 14.4 minutes per game heading into the All-Star break.

Of the 21 games she's appeared in this season, De Souza has been in the starting lineup for 20 of them, but she is still seeing her lowest minutes total since her second season in the league. Her sporadic playing time is enough to keep her from being a viable fantasy option this season, but she will continue to be a strong veteran presence for a young Stars team.

July 12, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Souza accumulated 14 points (7-7 FG) and seven rebounds across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 79-72 win over the Fever.

De Souza had one of her best games of the season Wednesday, making all of her shots en route to a season-high 14 points. The seven boards she grabbed were also her best work on the glass since she snagged nine rebounds against the Storm on June 18. That said, despite starting, de Souza can largely be avoided in DFS considering her 14.3 minute-per-game workload and minimal statistics.

June 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Souza tallied eight points (4-4 FG), four rebounds, four assists and one block across 20 minutes during Wednesday's 78-81 loss to the Wings.

De Souza was perfect from the field Wednesday, hitting all four of her attempts from the field to notch eight points for the second game in a row. She's now started 11-of-12 games so far this season, but has largely been stuck in a complementary role to the likes of Kayla McBride and Monique Currie. For that reason, De Souza remains off the fantasy radar on most nights with season averages of 4.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 15.7 minutes per contest.
