2021 WNBA Major Awards Watch – Week 2

Jonquel Jones of the Connecticut Sun.

The WNBA has now completed two weeks of game action and we are starting to see some teams separate themselves from the rest. It is very early in the season, but the Connecticut Sun are the only WNBA team left that is undefeated. Some teams have played 5 games while other teams have only played two games so far. We are starting to see some players and coaches start to make a case for their respective awards.

You can view last week’s WNBA Awards watch here. This WNBA Awards Watch is updated weekly and are posted every Monday. It’s designed to see which players were  consistent throughout the whole season and to highlight players who had great weeks.
