Dream guard Jordin Canada ruled out until Olympic break

Atlanta Dream guard Jordin Canada has been ruled out until the Olympic break after suffering a broken finger against the New York Liberty on June 30.

Canada will be reevaluated in the coming weeks, the Dream said.

Canada, 28, has only appeared in four of Atlanta’s 18 games this season, but she’s averaged 30.3 minutes and 8.8 points per game in those contests. She played after the injury on July 2 against the Chicago Sky, finishing with 11 points and seven assists in the Dream’s 85-77 loss.

The two-time WNBA champion was traded to Atlanta from the Los Angeles Sparks in February. Canada set a career-high 13.3 points and six assists per game last season in her second year with the Sparks.

Canada played collegiately at UCLA and was selected by the Seattle Storm with the fifth pick in the 2018 draft, helping them to WNBA titles in 2018 and 2020. She was the WNBA steals leader in 2019 and 2023.
