WNBA teams will play 32 games this season with a four-week break built in to accommodate for the summer Olympics, which were postponed in 2020 over COVID-19. Washington will play each team in the league three times, except for the Mercury, who they're only scheduled to play twice.Β 


The Mystics won its first championship in franchise history in 2019 thanks a record-breaking season, including the most wins in franchise history and Most Valuable Player honors for perennial All-Star Elena Delle Donne. Della Donne opted out of the 2020 season due to health concerns but plans to play in 2021.Β
