Napheesa Collier will return to the court with the Minnesota Lynx Sunday, three months after giving birth to her daughter, Mila, in May.

The 25-year-old previously expressed interest in returning to the court in 2022 in order play with Lynx teammate Sylvia Fowles, who is set to retire at the end of the season.

Minnesota is in the middle of a postseason push, with the Lynx ranked 11th with four games left on the team’s regular-season schedule.

Per The Star Tribune, Collier practiced with the Lynx Saturday, hoping to prepare for playing time in the coming days.

In May, Collier signed a multi-year contract extension with the Lynx, keeping her with the team through 2025.

Minnesota will face off against the Atlanta Dream on Sunday at 7 pm ET on Prime Video.
