“It felt great. I mean, it was a long two weeks or a week and a half, two weeks,” she shared. “Taking time to yourself is really important. I feel like that’s just something that was important in resetting and refocusing within the team. I’m just happy to be back.”

She made sure to put a spotlight on mental health.

"My mental health is the most important thing before anything,” she stated. “I’m going to make sure I’m OK before anything because I don’t want to cause anything — harm or any cancer within the locker room. So, being able to take a reset to myself. Like I said before, I am human. I’m not just an athlete, and that’s OK to do.”

Reese last played with the team on Nov. 14 when she was benched in the second half of the game.
