The sports world continues to grow in concern for WNBA star Brittney Griner, 

Specially following the heartbreaking comments from her wife, Cherelle. 

This past week, Griner's wife, Cherelle, spoke with CBS News,  

informing Gayle King that the WNBA star is not doing well imprisoned in Russia. 

I think I cried for about two, three days straight...It was the most disturbing phone call I'd ever experienced, 

Cherelle said following a phone call with Brittney. 

Fans continue to be concerned for Griner, who has been in custody in Russia since early 2022. 

Brittney Griner was convicted on drug charges in Russia and sentenced to nine years in prison. However, her appeal will be heard later this month. 

I don’t know if she has anything left in her tank to continue to wake up every day and be in a place where she has no one," Cherelle said of Brittney.
