There are no planned schedule changes for the WNBA due to the coronavirus pandemic.
WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert said Thursday the league is moving forward with the WNBA draft on April 17 and the start of training camp on April 26.
The regular season is scheduled to start May 15.
"The health and safety of players and employees -- with our teams and at the league level -- is of the utmost importance," Engelbert said. "With regard to COVID-19, we are in touch with the teams, consulting with infectious disease specialists and monitoring guidance from the CDC and WHO. The WNBA is currently not in season, but together with the WNBPA and teams, we have been in close communication and will continue to connect with and offer resources to players in the U.S. and those playing overseas."
Engelbert added "further details" will be shared later this month.
