It’s been a while since former Louisville and Atlanta Dream star Angel McCoughtry laced up her sneakers to compete in a WNBA game.
After missing the 2018 postseason and all of the 2019 WNBA season due to a knee injury, McCoughtry has been cleared to step on the hardwood.
The five-time All-Star tweeted Wednesday that she has been cleared to play.
McCoughtry was selected first overall by the Atlanta Dream in the 2009 WNBA Draft. McCoughtry has played her entire WNBA career with the Atlanta Dream.
Atlanta! I’m grateful, thank you for allowing me to grow as a woman here! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/2og46GF6kI
