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....

Oh I wouldn’t be able to tell you. I follow the beat writers rather than the player. I’m sorry I couldn’t be much help.

Brittney's condition has been explained now as mental issues. I am happy that she has gotten help, emotionally, as well as getting herself
into top playing condition. Interesting point how the bubble, and its confinement, has played a negative role in players' lives.

They're the ones we read about. Think of all the everyday people going through similar issues. I glad that we now an administration that
addresses all of the issues and works on solutions.
