Locked on Women’s Basketball: Elena Delle Donne discusses her recovery

'Yeah, this has definitely been the toughest two years in my career'

Tonight’s Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast is different, but host Howard Megdal discusses the Washington Mystics championship year. And their defensive mindset for this season. And we get to hear from the 2019 champion Elena Delle Donne and her recovery.

At the Washington Mystics media day, the reporters were able to ask Delle Donne questions. The first reporter asks her, “so, how does it feel to be able to come into this season?”

“Last season was certainly a frustrating one coming in, and just not feeling like I was where I needed to be. And this year, it’s been a whole long time of figuring out what my body needs, a different way of moving. And just having the right team behind me to keep me on the court. To keep me on the right page of yeah, you’re feeling great.”
