Lynx star Napheesa Collier, her season in France having ended Saturday, arrived in the Twin Cities on Sunday.

But don't expect her to play for a bit. Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said Collier would have to have six consecutive negative COVID-19 tests before being allowed to play.

Assuming that first test came Sunday, she wouldn't be eligible to return to full team activities until after a negative test Friday. That means she would miss Tuesday's game at New York and Thursday's game against Seattle at Target Center.

Following Thursday's game, the Lynx don't play again until May 28 at Seattle. That means assuming Collier tests negative for six days, she would have plenty of time to practice with the team before her season debut against the Storm.
