Lightning COVID-19 tests negative

COVID-19 testing carried out yesterday on all members of Adelaide Lightning's travelling party at the WNBL's north Queensland hub came back negative, as expected.

The team left Adelaide - which is in the throes of a lockdown as of midnight following a cluster outbreak this week - on Monday of last week, a mere six hours after a Queensland Health deadline and yet now still must remain in quarantine until next Monday.

Adelaide's match against Southside, scheduled for last night in Townsville, was postponed, as are its other games this round against Sydney Uni Flames and Melbourne Boomers.

How the WNBL plans to slot those fixtures back into the draw remains problematic, given the date restraints of this hub season and the risk of serious injury after an extended break, then a multi-game schedule in a few dates scenario.

The mental and physical wellbeing of the all members of the Lightning’s travelling party during this mini-crisis is of grave concern.

"The league is currently working with clubs and event stakeholders to determine the best fixture solution for the three Lightning games that have been postponed while they are in quarantine. An announcement will occur in due course," the WNBL said in a statement released today.
