2022 Fantasy Outlook
One of the longest-tenured players in the WNBA, Taurasi has missed significant portions of the last three seasons due to various injuries. Considering she's entering her age-40 season, it would be surprising if Taurasi doesn't make a point to manage her workload. When available, Taurasi was plenty effective last season, notching 15.2 points, 4.9 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game, but she did see a slight downturn in her efficiency as a shooter. Excluding her six-game 2019 season, Taurasi finished with a career-worst 36.6 percent mark from the field and shot just 33.9 percent from deep, her lowest figure since her second season in the league back in 2005. Even at this stage in her career, Taurasi remains a big part of Phoenix's plans for 2022, especially with Brittney Griner's status up in the air.
Playoff return possible
GPhoenix Mercury
Quadriceps
August 8, 2022
Taurasi (quad) has been ruled out for the remainder of the regular season and could return during the postseason if the Mercury make the playoffs, Alexa Philippou of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The initial report from the team suggested Taurasi would miss the remainder of the 2022 campaign, but it appears we could see her again if the Mercury snag one of the final playoff spots. More information on her status should be released by the team ahead of the first postseason contest if there is one.
