Some bad news to share in Game 2 of the 2019 WNBA Finals. Washington Mystics forward Elena Delle Donne was injured in the first quarter of the game where she was quickly replaced by Emma Meesseman.

According to Ava Wallace of The Washington Post, Delle Donne suffered back spasms and is questionable to return.

The Mystics finished the first quarter with a 29-17 deficit. If there’s a time for Meesseman to get into “Belgian Cat” or “Playoff Emma” mode, it’s now!

We’ll update this post if anything different comes about.
