Lynx guard Odyssey Sims is in the WNBA bubble in Bradenton, Fla., and her return to the team could be days away.
Sims, an All-Star last season who gave birth to a son in early April, flew from Texas to Florida on Sunday. WNBA rules designed to control the spread of the coronavirus required her to quarantine at an off-campus hotel for four nights, being tested every day. As of Thursday she was allowed into the bubble, but will have to spend three more nights quarantined in her room, with daily testing.
If all goes well with the testing, Sims would be able to join the team starting Sunday. But because she has to serve a two-game suspension stemming from her drunken driving case last summer, the earliest she could play for the Lynx would be Thursday of next week vs. Las Vegas.
To make room on the roster the Lynx waived forward Megan Huff, who appeared in three games.
