Diggins, a 2014 All-Star, has 11,099 votes compared with 10,589 for Delle Donne, who last year paced all Eastern Conference players in the balloting. However, the 24-year-old Diggins will not play in The All-Star Game after recently suffering a season-ending knee injury.

Moreover, Seimone Augustus of the Minnesota Lynx (5,518) joins Diggins and Moore as the top vote-getters among Western Conference backcourt players. Aside from them, the 2014 WNBA Defensive Player of the Year Brittney Griner of the Phoenix Mercury (3,656) is also included in the rank.
In addition to Delle Donne, the top vote-getter among Eastern Conference guards is the Atlanta Dream’s Shoni Schimmel, MVP of Boost Mobile WNBA All-Star 2014 (4,419).
