She should've been disqualified for not tucking in her uniform.

There are many mothers that keep on playing. Johnson and Hill are two examples on the Wings. Bonner on the Mercury. Hawkins on the Mystics. All are recent mothers.


How soon were those players back in games after giving birth?


Candace Parker gave birth in May of 2009. She returned to the court in early July of that year.



Swoopes was 1st to miss a season due to pregnancy then i believe the list would be (Feel free to add on)
Jia Perkins
Lisa Leslie
Candace Parker
Bria Hartley
Bria Holmes
Nikki Teasley
Tayler Hill
Tianna Hawkins
Mistie Bass
Dewanna Bonner
Glory Johnson
Margo Dydek (R.I.H.)
Marie Ferdinand-Harris

Im sure theres alot more these are the ones off the top of my head.


?? That should be "missed all or part of a season". Parker played 25 regular season games in 2009 after she gave birth on May 13th, and Swoopes played 9 regular season games in 1997 after she gave birth (it is reported that she rejoined the Comets 6 weeks after giving birth).


Jia Perkins also appeared in few games late in 2004 after giving birth in May of that year.

Note that Perkins played in college through the 4th month of her pregnancy.


I don't remember the exact time but Tina Thompson also came back early after having her son. Maybe someone can give us the time.

oh yes dear god how could i forget Tina . I remember she gave birth in May 2005 and suited up for my beloved comets 2 months later in July. She still managed to average double figures that year at 10 PPG .

Cambage has gone home to Australia from China to get treatment for tendinitis and bursitis of her left Achilles. These don’t sound like serious issues but I suppose she wants to be cautious considering her Achilles history.

Cambage said her issues were with the left Achilles, so I did some detective work to see if it was the same Achilles as in 2014.



Here’s a picture of her leg in a cast from the prior Achilles procedure. Since the writing on the cast isn’t backwards, that means the picture isn’t flipped (which often happens with iPhones). That means her previous Achilles rupture happened on her right leg.
