Griner was recently sentenced to 9 years in a Russian prison for drug smuggling and is reportedly facing horrible conditions in her new penal colony.

Nadya Tolokonnikova of the activist group Pussy Riot spent two years in a penal colony in Russia and detailed her experience during an interview with MSNBC. Tolokonnikova says Griner can expect to work up to 16 hours a day and expect slave-like conditions while being tortured repeatedly by prison guards.

After recently attending a Lakers game, Diesel posted that he needed Brittney Griner home before home Christmas.
