Aces star Liz Cambage reveals that she might have had coronavirus while playing in China.

During a conversation with Melbourne's The Herald Sun newspaper, the native Australian recalled becoming ill in China. WBNA All-Star claimed that she was so sick that she had to be hospitalized at a facility near Beijing where she was limited to a wheelchair. Although she was diagnosed with pneumonia, Cambage believed she was battling something else. 

"I actually was sick in hospital, and I honestly think I had corona," Cambage said. "I was so weak, I couldn’t walk, I was in a wheelchair. I had pneumonia. I think I had it before it was a global thing."

Like a lot of WNBA stars, Cambage plays overseas as well as stateside. She was playing for the Women’s Chinese Basketball Association's Shanxi Flame when she got sick. After making a full recovery, Cambage traveled to Las Vegas in January to start the Aces' season. The Aces released a statement on Friday assuring the public that Cambage is healthy and not contagious even though it is unclear if she's been tested for COVID-19. 

"[Cambage] is currently not exhibiting any health issues, but out of an abundance of caution, will continue to consult with her doctors," the statement reads per the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "The same is true for any of our players competing overseas during the offseason, as obviously the health and safety of our players and fans is our highest priority."
