Caitlin Clark hurts left ankle, exits Fever-Sun game

Caitlin Clark

Indiana Fever star Caitlin Clark limped off the court with an apparent left ankle injury in the second quarter of Monday’s game against the visiting Connecticut Sun.

While on defense, Clark appeared to fold the ankle under her as she approached a Connecticut player who was setting a screen. Without making contact with the defender, she went down to the court for a few moments before heading back to the locker room when play was halted with 5:29 left in the second quarter and Connecticut leading 36-34.

Clark, a rookie who began the night averaging a team-best 17 points per game, returned to the bench moments later but did not return to the game in the first half. The Fever led 44-41 at halftime.

ESPN reported during intermission that Clark could return during the second half.

She had eight points, two rebounds and two turnovers in the first half.

Clark experienced tightness in the ankle during warmups but didn’t think it was serious, according to the ESPN broadcast.
