WNBA releases COVID-19 test results, 7 players tested positive, Fever delay arrival in Bradenton
Seven WNBA players tested positive for the coronavirus after 137 players underwent testing between June 28 and July 5. Two of those players are from the Indiana Fever. As a result, the Fever will delay the team’s departure to Bradenton, Florida, where a truncated 22-game WNBA season is set to begin later this month at IMG Academy.
From the league:
Any player who tested positive will remain in self-isolation until she satisfies public health protocols for discontinuing isolation and has been cleared by a physician.
Players and staff from 11 of the 12 WNBA teams will arrive at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida today. The Indiana Fever will delay their travel by at least five days in an abundance of caution due to the CDC’s close contact self-quarantine requirements.
