Elena Delle Donne is a go for Game 3 of the WNBA Finals.
The Mystics have announced the 2019 WNBA MVP will indeed be in Sunday’s starting lineup against the Connecticut Sun.
Delle Donne was deemed questionable to play in Sunday’s game after an MRI on Monday revealed a herniated disk in her back, something head coach Mike Thibault said received “extensive treatment” in between Games 2 and 3. She was seen warming up on the Mohegan Sun court in uniform ahead of the 3:30 p.m. ET tip-off.
Ariel Atkins is also a go after being deemed questionable earlier this week due to back spasms.
The best-of-five WNBA Finals are tied at a game apiece.
