Dallas Wings' Star Guard Arike Ogunbowale Uncertain for Matchup Against Washington Mystics

Arike Ogunbowale Injury Update: Game Status Uncertain for Wings vs. Mystics

Dallas, TX – The Dallas Wings’ star guard, Arike Ogunbowale, is listed as a game-time decision for Saturday’s matchup against the Washington Mystics due to an Achilles injury. Ogunbowale is the Wings’ leading scorer, averaging 25.4 points per game this season.

Impact on Wings’ Lineup

Ogunbowale’s absence would be a significant blow to the Wings, who are already dealing with several injuries. Forward Satou Sabally (shoulder) and Natasha Howard (foot) remain out, while rookie Maddy Siegrist (finger) is expected to miss the next two months.

Mystics Facing Own Injury Concerns

The Mystics have also been hit by injuries, with forward Elena Delle Donne (back), guard Elizabeth Williams (knee), and center Shakira Austin (foot) all sidelined. However, they have been boosted by the recent return of guard Ariel Atkins, who scored 27 points in Wednesday’s loss to the Indiana Fever.

Matchup Preview

Both the Wings and Mystics have struggled this season, with the Wings holding a 3-11 record and the Mystics sitting at 2-13. Despite their struggles, the Wings have won the last three meetings between the two teams.


With Ogunbowale’s status uncertain, the Mystics may have a slight edge on Saturday. They have shown some improvement in recent games, and they should be able to take advantage of the Wings’ depleted roster.
