MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL – The Minnesota Lynx today issued the following statement regarding the postponement of tonight’s contest against the Los Angeles Sparks:

“The Minnesota Lynx fully support our players’ decision to postpone tonight’s games from being played. We as an organization condemn yet another senseless act committed by police, this time in Kenosha, WI against Jacob Blake, as well as every act of police brutality against black and brown communities. We stand with our players who are using their platforms to stand against racial injustices in our country and create meaningful change.”
