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.
Intends to play for Phoenix in 2023

December 16, 2022
Griner made a statement on her personal Instagram on Friday stating her intentions to play for the Mercury this upcoming season, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Griner missed the entirety of the 2022 season while being imprisoned in Russia on drug charges. The star center was freed after nearly 10 months in early December. While the Mercury retained her rights for 2023, her plans to play were uncertain. Griner has now put these questions to rest and intends to spend at least another season with the team she has been with her entire WNBA career.
