Lisa Leslie returns to the court, brings Lauren along

Getty Images has a few new photos of WNBA star Lisa Leslie, 36, and her daughter Lauren Jolie, 3 months, before a team practice in Connecticut on Friday.

Lisa recently returned from maternity leave and joined the US women’s national team for an 8-game college tour. The experience of taking a year off to enjoy her pregnancy and leave, then coming back to play basketball again was one which Lisa was unsure if she could handle.

Honestly, I didn’t know if I was going to beable to play or not. Being back out on the floor, I justlove basketball, and regardless of whatever my age is, as long as I’mkeeping up and able to contribute, I’ll play.

It’s been awesome for me, just this wholewhirlwind of making the transition from having Lauren and now steppingback on the floor. It’s definitely different. Obviously,I feel different. So, for me, this is just taking baby steps at a time,and hopefully I’ll get back to where I left off.

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
