WNBA to adjust challenge and timeout rules for 2024

WNBA referees

The WNBA will usher in a pair of rule changes for the 2024 season, revising the replay challenge format while also eliminating 20-second timeouts.

Teams will be awarded a second coach’s challenge if the first one was successful. In a continuation of the previous rule, teams still will need to have a timeout in order to initiate a replay challenge.

Challenges are limited to a foul call, an out-of-bounds violation, goaltending or basket interference.

Teams will now have five “team” timeouts and one “reset” timeout, in a change from four full team timeouts and two 20-second timeouts in previous seasons. A reset timeout allows teams to advance the ball and make substitutions but not huddle with coaches.

Teams can use a reset timeout in the final two minutes of regulation or overtime.
