Lindsay Allen Returns To Aces Following Second Straight Negative COVID-19 Test

BRADENTON, FL (August  1, 2020)—Las Vegas Aces General Manager Dan Padover announced today that guard Lindsay Allen recorded her second consecutive negative COVID-19 test after receiving an “inconclusive positive result” 48 hours earlier. Per league protocol, Allen was permitted to rejoin the team today at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, and took part in the Aces’ afternoon practice.

Under the safety procedures outlined by the WNBA and WNBPA, an inconclusive positive result makes no conclusive determination as to whether the person does or does not have COVID-19, but  requires isolation of the player while awaiting the results of the two follow-up tests, which needed to be administered at least 24 hours apart.

Allen was forced to miss the Aces game Friday evening against the Phoenix Mercury, which Las Vegas lost, 102-95.
