Share post:

Atlanta Dream guard Rhyne Howard will have her sprained left ankle evaluated on Thursday.

The two-time WNBA All-Star left Wednesday’s 68-55 loss at Minnesota in the third quarter.

Howard, 24, stepped on Lynx guard Courtney Williams’ foot while driving to the basket.

Howard is the second member of the 2024 U.S. Olympic 3×3 team to sustain an injury this week. Rookie forward Cameron Brink of the Los Angeles Sparks tore her left ACL Tuesday and will miss the Paris Games and the rest of the 2024 WNBA campaign.

Howard, the No. 1 pick and Rookie of the Year in 2022, is averaging 15.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 13 games (all starts) this season for the Dream (6-7).

Howard finished Wednesday’s game in Minneapolis with six points on 1-of-9 shooting with five rebounds. She did not return after exiting with 4:15 left in the third.
