WNBA's Skylar Diggins-Smith Reveals She Played While Pregnant

October 21, 2019

WNBA player Skylar Diggins-Smith said in a series of tweets that she played while pregnant all of last season and then took two months off because of “postpartum depression.” 

Diggins-Smith, a member of the Dallas Wings, said “having no support from your own organization is unfortunate.” 

The Dallas star averaged 17.9 points per game and was named an All-Star. 

Pregnant players are eligible to earn half their salary under the WNBA’s collective bargaining agreement. 

“The blasts that disrespect of mothers (and our rights) in the WNBA is incredible,” Diggins-Smith said in a tweet. 

It’s unclear whether Diggins-Smith will play in 2020.
