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 league didn't immediately announce when Game 1 of the best-of-five series would be played. 

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.
