The 2023 WNBA season is officially underway and most teams will have played at least two games by the end of this week. In the early goings, the Dallas Wings are near the top of the standings having won their season opener against the Atlanta Dream. The Wings made the playoffs last season but revamped their roster a bit. One of the mainstays though is Teaira McCowan who holds down the middle for the Wings. She appears to be one of the team's building blocks and their center of the future. Teaira McCowan suffered a knee injury against the Dream and did not return to the game. She appears okay though for Friday's game against the Seattle Storm as she is not listed on the Wings injury report and is instead listed as a projected starter as per Jasmine Harper of Winsidr.

Teaira McCowan has been relatively injury free during her WNBA career to this point and her continued development is something to watch this season. Before leaving the game against the Dream, McCowan had put up four points and nine rebounds on 2-3 shooting from the field in 16 minutes of play.

In the playoffs, McCowan averaged 10.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.7 blocked shots on shooting splits of 48 percent shooting from the field and 53.3 percent shooting from the free-throw line.

Although the Wings have not yet released the official injury report, McCowan most likely will play based on this information.
