WASHINGTON -- Washington Mystics guard Tayler Hill is pregnant and will miss at least part of next season.

The team said in a statement Friday that the first child for Hill and David Lighty, who also played college basketball at Ohio State, is due in May.

Mystics coach and general manager Mike Thibault says Hill "intends to play at some point next season, and we will be glad to welcome her back when she is ready to return."

The fourth overall pick in the 2013 WNBA draft, Hill averaged 6.5 points and 1.7 rebounds last season, which began in late May.
