WNBA Player Milestones to watch for in 2019

The WNBA season is just 10(!) days away now and with the season approaching, it’s time to look at certain milestones that active WNBA players will reach this season. For example, Sue Bird will hit 3000 assists this season which has never been done by a  WNBA player. When Diana Taurasi returns from her back injury, she is the league all time leading scorer and will try to reach the 9000 point threshold, which is another milestone that no player has ever reached. I will include that milestone once she returns.  Listed below are the three main categories (scoring, rebounds and assists) and which players are close to hitting them this season. Enjoy!
