Nikki Teasley (born March 22, 1979 in Washington, D.C.) is a former basketball player in the WNBA.

She played college basketball at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

In the 2002 WNBA Draft, Teasley was selected as the #5 overall pick by the Portland Fire. But shortly afterwards, she was traded with Sophia Witherspoon to the Los Angeles Sparks for Ukari Figgs and second-round pick Gergana Slavtcheva.

Teasley helped the Sparks win their second consecutive title by hitting a series-winning three-pointer in the final seconds.

On March 24, 2008, Teasley was waived by the Washington Mystics.

The Atlanta Dream signed Teasley in 2008 and she suited up for the 2009 season. Teasley was then waived for Ivory Latta.
