The Atlanta Dream have announced that starter Bria Holmes will miss the upcoming season due to pregnancy:

“Unfortunately, I will have to miss the 2018 season because I’m expecting but I plan to return to the Dream in 2019 stronger, healthier and ready to play. As a female professional athlete, it is hard to start a family while playing year-round but this little human inside of me is truly a blessing to me, my family, and my boyfriend. I’m so happy and thankful I can continue my career after my bundle of joy is here. To my coaches, teammates, staff, & fans I want to thank you so much for all your support and help since I was drafted in 2016 and wish everyone good luck this season - I’ll be cheering you all on! One Dream, One Team.”
