Game 1 of the WNBA playoff semifinals between the Seattle Storm and Minnesota Lynx will be played Tuesday night, two days after it was postponed because of inconclusive COVID-19 tests. 

WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert says three Storm players have undergone additional testing and been cleared to rejoin the team. 

One player was waiting on the results of a second test. But she has passed it.  

A player needs to have two negative tests taken 24 hours apart to be cleared to play.
