    Due to “personal reasons”

    WTF is going on?

    Maybe she's being trained in how to be a strong rebounder, now that DeWanna Bonner is gone and replaced by a Point Guard. :rolleyes:

    As I posted in the game thread, when an employee disappears
    for a long time without an explanation, it usually means rehab.

    If so, it means our NBA and WNBA Centers would have both
    lost games this year due to drugs.

    No sense of responsibility to their community, teams or fans.

    A psychotic race-baiter in the White House looking to steal another
    election with Russia's (and China, Iran and the Post Office's) help,

    And pretending that a deadly virus will magically
    disappear, making
    us all prisoners and destroying the economy.

    The 21st Century is not being kind to us!

    I was wondering if anything definitive has been said on this?

    I just verified online . . . nothing in the news since she vanished.

    I still feel that, when someone in a key position vanishes without
    an explanation, it usually means rehab.

    It will come out eventually. When arguably the best center in the WNBA stops playing in a season with no explanation, it has to come out. They will have to fine and give her a playing time penalty next season.

    I worry about things like mental issues. That would be a reason not to talk about it right now, too.

    I have a feeling that is what lead to her leaving the bubble. Hard to speculate....
