Liz Cambage to miss time after positive COVID test

Aces starting center has been placed in the league's health and safety protocols

The Las Vegas Aces announced today that starting center Liz Cambage tested positive for COVID-19. And has been placed in the WNBA’s Health and Safety Protocols. According to the team’s statement, Cambage is fully vaccinated and experiencing mild symptoms. She will isolate until cleared to play per the league’s protocols.

Aces center Kiah Stokes will likely take over Cambage’s spot in the starting line-up. Stokes signed with Vegas in July and started in place of Cambage for two games earlier this season when Cambage was out due to Australian national team commitments.

Liz is averaging 14.7 points and 8.4 rebounds in 24.4 minutes per game this season. Her production has helped Las Vegas reach the second overall spot in the league standings with a 19-7 record. If the Aces can hold on to the two spot, they will secure a coveted double-bye to the semi-finals of the WNBA playoffs. Six games are remaining on the team’s regular-season schedule.

The Aces host the Chicago Sky tomorrow at 10 p.m. E.T.
