Game 1 of Storm-Lynx semifinal scheduled for Tuesday after COVID-19 postponement

The WNBA confirmed that Game 1 of the semifinal matchup between the Seattle Storm and Minnesota Lynx will take place Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2. 

Game 1 was originally scheduled for Sunday, but the WNBA postponed the fixture after multiple Seattle players returned inconclusive coronavirus test results.

"The players in question have all undergone extensive additional testing and have been cleared to rejoin the team, other than one player who most recently tested negative and is awaiting the results of a second test taken 24 hours apart from the first, pursuant to the WNBA health and safety protocols," the league explained in its official statement. 

The WNBA will continue testing and monitoring players and other personnel remaining inside the bubble site in Bradenton, Fla., for the completion of the postseason tournament. 

The Connecticut Sun defeated the Las Vegas Aces 87-62 in Game 1 of the other semifinal on Sunday. Game 2 of that series occurs on Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2. 

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
