2022 Fantasy Outlook
A perennial WNBA All-Star, Griner's 2021 season was no exception. Griner compiled 20.5 points, a career-best 9.5 rebounds and a league-leading 1.9 blocks per contest. She even slightly improved on limited attempts from deep, connecting on four of her nine tries. While Griner's talent would dictate her being among the top players in the league, she is currently detained in Russia. The situation has attracted international attention and it's still very much unclear when Griner may be allowed to return to the United States. As of mid-March, it's quite possible – if not likely – that Griner will be unavailable to begin the 2022 WNBA season.
Pretrial detention extended

Griner's pretrial detention has been extended 30 days by a Russian court, T.J. Quinn of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Griner has been detained in Russia since early March, and Friday's extension of her detention was extended. However, the United States government still classifies the 31-year-old as "wrongfully detained" by the Russian government, so the U.S. government will presumably continue to negotiate for Griner's return. It's not yet clear when Griner will be able to return stateside.
