Elena Delle Donne, who has missed all but one game this season due to Lyme disease, is expected to play.

Delle Donne expected to return against Maryland

Star forward Elena Delle Donne is expected to be back in the lineup for the Delaware Blue Hens tonight against the Maryland Terrapins after missing all but one game so far this season, according to a report by Kevin Tresolini of The News Journal.

The best medicine, Elena Delle Donne suggested Wednesday, may be a heavy dose of competitive basketball tonight...Delle Donne has been blue herself of late. She has battled flu-like symptoms caused by the vestiges of Lyme Disease, but plans to play just her second game this season and first since Nov. 20 tonight.

The Delaware athletics site is showing that Delle Donne's return to action will be in front of a sell out crowd, which is hoping for a win to avenge a loss last year.

In last season's meeting in College Park, Delle Donne had game-highs of 32 points, 3 blocks, and 3 steals in 40 minutes of action.
