New York Liberty star Asia Durr, 23, is facing an uncertain future because of COVID-19, which continues to ravage her body and keep her off the hardwood nearly eight months after her diagnosis.

‘I couldn’t breathe,’ Durr told HBO’s Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel. ‘I was spitting up blood. It was just lung pain that was just so severe. It felt like somebody took a long knife and was just stabbing you in your lungs each second.’

Durr is considered one of the ‘long-haulers’ – a group that has baffled health officials, who have struggled to learn why the duration of COVID-19 symptoms can vary from subject to subject.
