  • Elena Delle Donne, A'ja Wilson named WNBA All-Star captains

Natasha Howard of Seattle, Connecticut's Jonquel Jones, Liz Cambage of Las Vegas and Brittney Griner of Las Vegas are the other frontcourt starters. The other starting guards are Los Angeles' Chelsea Gray, Seattle's Jewell Loyd and New York's Kia Nurse. She is third in free throws made (56) and sixth in attempts (61). Loyd, Jones and Wilson are All-Stars for the second time.

Howard and Nurse are both first-time All-Stars. The latter group will be determined by WNBA coaches and be announced on July 15.

The league's coaches will vote for the 12 reserve - three guards, five frontcourt players and four utility choices. Coaches can't vote for their own players. Delle Donne gets the first pick of the starters and Wilson gets first choice of the reserves. It's the first All-Star experience for the second-year guard out of CT. Additional details about the WNBA All-Star Draft will be announced at a later date.

- Elena Delle Donne, Mystics (6th All-Star selection): The 2015 WNBA MVP has been voted to each All-Star Game played in her career, including three selections with the Chicago Sky and three with the Mystics.

Nurse has also played a complete 40 minutes twice this season, both in games against the Minnesota Lynx (June 12, June 22). She has started all 15 games for NY this season.
