8 p.m. vs. Seattle • ESPN2

Lynx update: The Lynx are hoping the extra day of rest afforded them with the postponement of Sunday's game – due to inconclusive COVID-19 tests to multiple Seattle players – will mitigate the rest advantage the top two seeds normally get. This will be just the second game in 10 days for the Lynx. That rest could help C Sylvia Fowles (calf), but she is still listed as questionable. The rest will certainly help rookie G Crystal Dangerfield. Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve has been talking all season about the physical toll the season has taken on Dangerfield. G Lexie Brown (concussion protocol) is out and has left the WNBA bubble; she hasn't played since Sept. 6 and won't play again this season.

Storm update: Will the Storm be rusty? This will be Seattle's first game since losing to Las Vegas in the regular season finale Sept. 13. For F Breanna Stewart and G Sue Bird, it will be even longer. Stewart (foot injury) and Bird (knee) were held out of the final two regular-season games. They are not listed on the team's injury report. For those two critical players it will be their first game since Sept. 9, nearly two weeks ago.
