WNBA rules canceled game a forfeit by Las Vegas

On Friday, the Las Vegas Aces and Washington Mystics had to cancel their game after an unbelievable series of travel misfortunes prevented the Aces from getting to Washington D.C.in time to rest and warm-up for the contest.

The Aces were originally planning on leaving Las Vegas on Thursday afternoon, and would have had a chance to practice once Friday before their game, originally scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.

The WNBA had never postponed a game and subsequently declared a forfeit because a team chose not to play.

The matchup initially set for Friday was canceled and rescheduled for Tuesday when the Aces decided not to play after 26 hours of travel.

"In the end, given the limited number of days remaining in the season and arena availability, we made a decision to delay the start of the game until 8 p.m.to give the Aces as much time as possible between arrival in Washington, D.C. and tipoff".

The forfeit moves the Mystics to 17-11, which ties the Los Angeles Sparks for third in the league, while dropping the Aces to 12-16.

The Mystics, who were expecting a large crowd on Breast Cancer Awareness night, had to give fans refunds and tickets to another game.
