The WNBA playoffs have been delayed. The Storm players apparently put themselves at risk and a flurry of positive COVID-19 cases has inundated their on-court personnel. Should be a forfeit situation IMO.

This could actually work to the Lynx favor. Fowles was questionable for game 1. This will give her calf more time to rest.


Dangerfield is pretty banged up as well.

On the other hand, it also lets Sue Bird and Brianna Stewart get healthier as well.

What do you guys think about the Storm forfeiting if they can't put a team on the court?

If they literally can't field a team in the next handful of days, then they'd probably have to.

But I think you're probably getting way ahead of yourself.

Also, this is a Ewen level post of misinformation and fear-mongering.

Here is the real story:

After receiving inconclusive COVID-19 test results today for players from the Seattle Storm, the WNBA announced that Game 1 of the WNBA Semifinals between the Seattle Storm and the Minnesota Lynx has been postponed out of an abundance of caution.

League protocol treats inconclusive tests as positive tests to protect players, coaches and personnel. And to prevent the spread of the virus throughout its bubble community. There must be two negative tests more than 24 hours between each other for the player to be cleared.

The WNBA has had a few instances of inconclusive tests while in the bubble. Los Angeles Sparks rookie Te’a Cooper had to sit out a game after a test came back inconclusive as did Las Vegas Aces guard Lindsay Allen. They were each cleared with negative tests within the day.

A few players tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival at the facility. They were quarantined and did not return to their teams until they had multiple negative tests.

The WNBA postseason is scheduled out through the finals. Game 2 is scheduled to take place on Tuesday with Game 3 on Thursday evening.

There will need to be two negative tests before players are cleared to return to the team and play. If those are taken Sunday and Monday, they would get results for them on Monday and Tuesday. It would theoretically clear them to play Tuesday evening in the same spot as scheduled, but only as Game 1.

That's good.

I take offense to the ewen comparison.

Fun game!

Dangerfield is struggling, but Collier is continuing to blossom into a superstar.

And we lose on a buzzer beater.

But we proved we can play with Seattle.

How did we not block that shot?

Napheesa Collier was incandescent. She put the team on her back in only her third career playoff game. Doing most of her work in the second half Collier finished with 25 points, nine rebounds, six blocks, three assists and four three pointers. She became the first player in Lynx franchise history to record five blocks in a single quarter. Three of those blocks were administered within a span of 75 second to 2020 WNBA MVP runner-up Breanna Stewart. Collier is the most important player for the post-dynasty Lynx. To see her rise to the occasion in a high-level playoff game is further confirmation that she is among the league’s elite players and a cornerstone for the franchise moving forward.

Down by 21 in the 3rd quarter. Cut it to 6 heading to the 4th.
