Sending lots of love and light to Tulsa Shock star Skylar Diggins. The WNBA superstar has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season.
Diggins injured her knee Sunday during Tulsa’s match up against the Seattle Storm. Skylar posted her thoughts on the injury to Instagram.
Ever since I could remember, I loved the game of basketball. Once I discovered what it was, I was fascinated by it. I found my passion at 5 years old….I wanted to play ball! Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the game could take me the places it has. I met some of my best friends and mentors, traveled the world, went to college for free, the list goes on and on…. I’ve never been forced to be without it, because I’ve always been healthy enough to practice and play! Until now…..a torn ACL is never something I thought would be a part of my story. But you know what they say?, “When man plans, God laughs.” This injury is one of my tests I had to go through to give my testimony in the end! Thank you for all the prayers, well wishes, and kind words. It really means a lot to me. This is a tough pill to swallow….but with God, and the support of my family, friends, and fans, how can I be NOT be positive. It just sucks that I have to learn to walk all over again……but I promise you, my NEW walk will be so glorious! #ShockTulsa
