AD tested positive for COVID in 2020 and it turned their world upside down. The 2nd overall pick in the 2019 WNBA draft battled the virus for nearly two years in what was diagnosed as “Long haul COVID-19.” AD feared they may lose their life.
Refusing to give up, and fighting day in and day out, AD returned to the court in April 2022 for training camp with the New York Liberty. Months later AD would be traded to their hometown team — the Atlanta Dream.
We partnered with Uninterrupted to tell this compelling story of AD's return to basketball, their journey in finding themselves, and never being knocked down.
