Fantasy Need to Know: Sabrina Ionescu has been on a tear recently averaging 19.7 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 7.1 APG, 2.6 3PG and 1.2 SPG in the month of June. She has two double-doubles and a triple-double in her last four games and is living up to her potential. Han Xu (80.2% available) is listed as probable after missing last game with an illness. Xu has averaged 11.8 PPG, and 3.4 RPG over her past five games.
The Dream have been dealing with a number of injuries, particularly in their backcourt. Tiffany Hayes still hasn't made her season debut, and both Erica Wheeler and Kristy Wallace are listed as game-time decisions after sitting out Tuesday's game. Due to those injuries, Aari McDonald (56.8% available) has started four games and averaged 16.8 PPG, 5.0 APG and 2.8 RPG. AD Durr (95.7% available) has also been an important contributor for Atlanta off the bench. Durr has averaged 16.7 PPG, 2.7 RPG and 2.3 APG over the past three games. Newcomer Maya Caldwell (100% available) also shined in her WNBA debut on Tuesday, scoring 18 points with four assists, four 3-pointers, two steals and a rebound in 30 minutes of action.
Best bet: Liberty +1
The Dream have lost four of their past five games as they've dealt with their string of injuries. Their average scoring margin during that stretch has been -5.6 PPG. The Liberty, on the other hand, have turned things around this month after a nightmare start to the season. New York has won six of their past nine games, including a four-point win over Connecticut on Wednesday. They have an average scoring margin of +5.3 PPG during that span.
