2024 Fantasy Outlook
Austin underwent hip surgery at the beginning of December and was given a 4-to-6 month recovery timetable, putting her status for the start of 2024 in jeopardy. Even if she’s available right away, she may experience some limitations to avoid a potential setback. Despite battling the lingering issue during the 2023 campaign, Austin still averaged 10.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.9 blocks across 19 appearances (17 starts). However, due to the missed time, she finished as the 89th player in fantasy as opposed to her 56th-place finish as a rookie, even though her averages were better in Year 2. Austin’s health is going to be the main factor when evaluating her fantasy value, but as long as she’s available, the third-year center has a chance to take a major leap in 2024. Read Past Outlooks
No timetable for return

Hip
June 17, 2024
Coach Eric Thibault said Monday that Austin (hip) doesn't yet have a timetable to return to game action, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Austin has missed the last six games due to a left hip injury, and her recovery process has been described as inconsistent. However, she said Monday that she's taking things day-to-day at this point, per Copeland. The Mystics are slated to face Indiana on Wednesday, and her status for that game appears to be in doubt.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
Austin was the third overall pick in the 2022 WNBA Draft but flew under the radar compared to fellow rookies Rhyne Howard and NaLyssa Smith. However, Austin showed plenty of promise, appearing in every game last year and starting in 32 of her 36 outings. She faced some growing pains with inconsistent performances but was a solid source of points and rebounds, averaging 8.7 points and 6.5 rebounds in 21.6 minutes per game. The Mystics acquired Amanda Zahui B. during the offseason, but Austin's role in 2023 should remain secure, especially since Elizabeth Williams is now in Chicago. Austin's inconsistency may drive her down fantasy draft boards in 2023, but she certainly has upside if she can take a step forward during her sophomore season
