During her detention in Russia, Griner has been able to receive emails and messages from WNBA players. Players have written hundreds of emails to an account set up by Griner’s agency to allow them to contact with her.

After being approved by Russian officials, the emails are printed out and sent in batches to Griner by her lawyer. Griner does not have access to the email account; she will either write a response on paper and have her attorneys photograph it, or she will dictate a response if no paper is available.
