Atlanta Dream centre Kalani Brown tested positive for the coronavirus on July 9 and remains under quarantine as the team prepares to play in the WNBA bubble.

In a statement released by the team, Brown says she has battled “challenging” symptoms including headache, sore throat, chills, body aches, fatigue, loss of the sense of taste, and shortness of breath.

Brown says she is feeling better but won’t be able to play when the Dream open the season on Sunday against Dallas.

Atlanta acquired Brown from the Los Angeles Sparks on Feb. 10 in exchange for guard Brittney Sykes and centre Marie Gulich.
