Delle Donne practicing despite Lyme

Latest word from Wilmington News Journal is that Elena Delle Donne, who we noted earlier today is taking medication for Lyme disease, returned to practice on Tuesday. It was the sophomore's first practice since Dec. 19. She is not expected to play Thursday at Hofstra but could return as early as Sunday against George Mason.

According to the story, Delle Donne had Lyme disease in the summer of 2008 but realized it right away, went on antibiotics and was fine. Initial symptoms of Lyme, which is caused by the bite of a deer tick, can include fever, chills, fatigue, joint and muscles aches.
