CHICAGO – About a month away from the start of the 2020 WNBA season in Florida, a second Chicago Sky player has tested positive for COVID-19.
On Saturday morning, guard Sydney Colson, who joined the team as a free agent this past winter, revealed on Twitter that she was diagnosed with the virus.
“I do the least and tested positive so I’m tryna see how folks who do the mooost are out here partying and feelin grand,” said Colson on her post on Twitter.
She is the second member of the team to test positive for COVID-19 as forward Stefanie Dolson was also diagnosed this past spring.
During the WNBA Draft in April, Dolson had a taped message where she revealed that her entire family along with herself tested positive for the virus. Her mother was admitted to the hospital, but everyone in the family survived the bout with COVID-19.
Starting her professional basketball career in 2011 after a successful run at Texas A & M that ended with a national championship, Colson has played for four different WNBA teams. That included the Las Vegas Aces, whom she played for in 2019, averaging 3.3 points and 1.8 assists in 33 games.
She also played three years overseas in Poland, which followed her time with the New York Liberty in the preseason of 2011.
