Presidential candidate Joe Biden had the following message for Elena Delle Donne, a Washington Mystics player and WNBA MVP who was recently injured during the WNBA Finals.
He wished her well and said he looks forward to seeing her back on the court.
Elena @De11eDonne is the pride of Delaware. Wishing her well as she recovers — we need more professional athletes like her sharing their support for inclusive sports. I'm looking forward to seeing her back on the court soon.
