WNBA postpones Game 1 of Storm-Lynx due to COVID-19 test originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- The opener of the WNBA playoff series between the Seattle Storm and the Minnesota Lynx was postponed nearly 90 minutes before its scheduled tipoff Sunday because of inconclusive COVID-19 test results for Storm players.

The players with inconclusive results have undergone additional testing and are in isolation, according to the WNBA.

The Lynx already had arrived at the arena and some of the players had been warming up when they were told the game was postponed.

The league didn't immediately announce when Game 1 of the best-of-five series would be played. Game 2 was scheduled for Tuesday night.

The WNBA made it through the regular season with a few false positive tests for the coronavirus, but no players developed COVID-19 once the season started. The season is being played inside a bubble environment at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.

Everyone inside the bubble has been tested for the virus every day.
