2022 Fantasy Outlook
A perennial WNBA All-Star, Griner's 2021 season was no exception. Griner compiled 20.5 points, a career-best 9.5 rebounds and a league-leading 1.9 blocks per contest. She even slightly improved on limited attempts from deep, connecting on four of her nine tries. While Griner's talent would dictate her being among the top players in the league, she is currently detained in Russia. The situation has attracted international attention and it's still very much unclear when Griner may be allowed to return to the United States. As of mid-March, it's quite possible – if not likely – that Griner will be unavailable to begin the 2022 WNBA season.

Griner was found guilty of drug possession and smuggling, T.J. Quinn of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Griner has finally received her day in court and was predictably found guilty of the charges. She's expected to be part of a prisoner exchange coming at some point and getting through her court trial presumably draws her closer to that day. For now, Griner will return to Russian prison and await her opportunity to return to the United States.
