When do the WNBA playoffs start in 2021? Schedule, updated standings & more to know

The WNBA playoff picture is starting to come into focus.

With just a few days remaining in the regular season, seven teams have clinched playoff berths (Connecticut Sun, Las Vegas Aces, Minnesota Lynx, Seattle Storm, Phoenix Mercury, Chicago Sky and Dallas Wings), and three teams remain in contention for the last spot (Washington Mystics, Los Angeles Sparks and New York Liberty).
