Australian basketballer Liz Cambage has been forced into isolation after testing positive to Covid-19.
The Los Angeles Aces confirmed its 30-year-old young gun, who is based in the United States, had been struck down by the virus on Thursday morning.
‘She is fully vaccinated, experiencing mild symptoms, and will continue to isolate until she is cleared to return to play pursuant to the protocols,’ the Aces said in a statement, referencing the WNBA’s Health & Safety Protocols.
There are only six games left to play in the Women’s National Basketball Association league with Cambage’s team due to face-off Chicago Sky on Friday, but it’s not yet known if its star player will be in attendance.
Cambage currently holds the league’s single-game scoring record with a 53-point performance against New York Liberty in July 2018.
More recently she withdrew from the Tokyo Olympic Games, citing mental health issues.
More to come.
