The Washington Mystics released their 2020 schedule Monday afternoon — a shortened 22-game season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Mystics begin their season July 25 against the Indiana Fever at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. The team will be featured in eight nationally televised games on ESPN, ESPN2, and CBSSN, according to the team’s announcement.

“The schedule has been kind to us with no back-to-backs,” Head Coach Thibault said in a Zoom conference call. “That’s a nice thing and there’s a couple times where we have several days off.”

The team will be without point guard Natasha Cloud and LaToya Sanders who have decided to sit out the season. Tina Charles and Elena Delle Donne are awaiting a decision to see if they will be medically excused for the season.

The Mystics are looking to repeat after winning the 2019 WNBA championship.
