SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – After consideration on whether to play, WNBA players decided to boycott the league’s scheduled games on Wednesday, August 26.

The players’ decision came shortly after the NBA decided to postpone the Wednesday’s games after the Milwaukee Bucks boycotted their Game 5 against the Orlando Magic.

The Bucks refused to take the floor in light of the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, by a police officer in Wisconsin on Sunday, August 23.

“The WNBA announced that the three games scheduled for this evening have been postponed. Information regarding rescheduling of the games will be provided when available,” the league announced.

In total, three WNBA games were postponed.

Those contests included:

  • Washington Mystics vs. Atlanta Dream
  • Los Angeles Sparks vs. Minnesota Lynx
  • Connecticut Sun vs. Phoenix Mercury
