The Sun announced Monday that Jones will sit out the 2020 season and return in 2021, Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic reports. "After careful thought and consideration I've decided to forego the upcoming WNBA season and use this time to focus on personal, social, and familial growth," Jones wrote in a statement. "This was one of the toughest decisions I've made but the resurgence and unknown aspects of COVID -19 have raised serious health concerns that I do not feel comfortable competing in."
ANALYSIS
Jones' decision to forgo playing in 2020 comes in the wake of the WNBA announcing last week that the league would return from suspension and begin its season in late July in Bradenton, Fla. with an abbreviated 22-game schedule and a traditional playoffs. The 26-year-old, who re-upped with Connecticut on a multi-year deal in February becomes one of the more prominent WNBA players to step away from the 2020 season due to health concerns, as the Lynx's Maya Moore and the Dream's Renee Montgomery had previously elected to sit out 2020 to focus on social justice reform. The Sun will likely turn to a combination of Theresa Plaisance and Brionna Jones to fill the void at center left by Jonquel Jones, who averaged 14.6 points, 9.7 boards, 2.0 blocks, 1.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 three-pointers in 28.8 minutes per game while shooting 44.8 percent from the field in 2019.
