It was announced today that Atlanta Dream forward Glory Johnson has been cleared to play by WNBA and team medical staffs.
Johnson, who had tested positive for COVID-19 but was asymptomatic, received the necessary negative tests and has begun practicing with the team. Johnson will be suited and available for tonight’s game against the Las Vegas Aces beginning at 10 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network.
The team also announced they have waived forward Erica McCall, who was signed after the Dream received an emergency hardship waiver prior to starting the season.
