  2. Next 36 Vote Getters: Provided to coaches to fill out the 12-player roster for Team WNBA.
  3. Starters: determined by the coaching staff of both teams.

This year’s format shift is designed to highlight the unique competitive edge of Team USA against the best of the WNBA, enhancing the excitement surrounding both the All-Star Game and the Olympic Games.

The WNBA is committed to making the All-Star Game an annual highlight, regardless of the Olympic schedule. With fan voting and a mix of established stars and rising talents, the 2024 WNBA All-Star Game in Phoenix promises to be an exciting showcase of women’s basketball at its best.
