Skylar Diggins-Smith Reveals She Played Entire 2018 Season While Pregnant (TWEET)
Skylar Diggins-Smith had something to reveal on Saturday, so she took to Twitter and posted about “having no support from [her] own organization” and then expanded by blasting those people who criticized her for not playing during the 2019 season after giving birth in the off-season.
The 29-year-old said she played while pregnant throughout the 2018 season and “didn’t tell a soul” while logging heavy minutes.
Diggins averaged 17.9 points and 6.2 assists a game and made her fourth All-Star appearance.
The WNBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement states that players who become pregnant under contract will receive half of their salary and have medical expenses covered by insurance.
Diggins is a free agent, so her calling out the Dallas Wings likely indicates she won’t be back with the team going forward.
