The WNBA would use its regular playoff format, with the top eight teams making the postseason and the first two rounds being single-elimination. The top two seeds would have byes until the semifinals. The postseason would end in early October. A 36-game season that was supposed to start May 15 was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
