RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schimmel will not play during the 2017 campaign. Schimmel released a statement that reads, "I'm very grateful to the New York Liberty for allowing me to take this season to deal with some personal issues. I look forward to rejoining them next year."

Schimmel, whose 2016 season was cut to just 17 games after a late-August concussion, has opted to "take time away from the game". According to the statement released by Liberty team President Isiah Thomas, she will "continue to have the full support of the New York Liberty. We look forward to continuing to work with Shoni during her time away from the game". While it's certainly not a guarantee that Schimmel will rejoin to the Liberty for the 2018 campaign, it appears that both sides are willing to reach an agreement if Schimmel so chooses to return to the game of basketball.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Schimmel has not reported to Liberty training camp and isn't expected to rejoin the team in the near future, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Schimmel played in 17 games for the Liberty in 2016, but her season was cut short by a late-August concussion. While playing in New York, the 5-9 guard averaged a career-low 2.1 PPG over just 4.5 minutes. Unclear about her role in 2017, the career 37.1 percent three-point shooter is sitting out with no timetable to return. If she doesn't clarify her situation soon, New York could choose to suspend Schimmel for the season while still retaining her rights, or they could elect to grant her an outright release.
