Atlanta Dream guard Rhyne Howard was named an AT&T WNBA All-Star for the second time in her two-year career, the league announced today. Howard will join Dream teammates Allisha Gray and Cheyenne Parker on Team Wilson in the game, stepping in as an injury replacement for the Washington Mystics’ Elena Delle Donne.
Howard is only the fourth player in Atlanta Dream history to earn multiple All-Star bids, and the selection marks only the third time the team has had three players in the game. 2023 is now the third-straight year with at least one All-Star in the game for Atlanta.
This season, Howard ranks 10th in the league in scoring with 18.7 points per game. The 2022 Kia WNBA Rookie of the Year is now averaging 24.2 points during Atlanta’s current five-game winning streak, which includes a career-high 43 points vs. the Los Angeles Sparks on July 2 and 32 points at the Chicago Sky on July 9.
The 2023 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game will be held in Las Vegas, Nev. at Michelob ULTRA Arena, tipping off at 8:30 p.m. ET (5:30 p.m. PT) nationally on ABC. More information on the weekend can be found here.
The AT&T WNBA All-Star Game will be the centerpiece of two full days packed with WNBA activities, including the WNBA STARRY® 3-Point Contest and Kia WNBA Skills Challenge, which will air on ESPN on Friday, July 14 at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET.
The WNBA also will host its “WNBA Live” fan festival, now in its second year. An exciting, interactive event open to the public, “WNBA Live” will provide fans an opportunity to experience the intersection of the WNBA, entertainment and culture leading up to the AT&T WNBA All-Star Game.
