Katie Douglas out of playoffs
Indiana will be without star Katie Douglas for the rest of the playoffs because of a lower back injury. Douglas was diagnosed with a bulging disc in her back in early June and didn't return to action until the final weekend of the regular season. She did not play in Indiana's victory Friday night at Chicago.
Pohlen to return against Chicago
Indiana has released rookie forward Jasmine Hassell to clear up a roster spot so guard Jeanette Pohlen can make her season debut Saturday night against Chicago. Pohlen has not played since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee during Game 2 of the 2012 WNBA Finals. She was Indiana's top draft pick in 2011 and was the first rookie to lead the league in 3-point percentage.
Davenport out for season
The injury-depleted Indiana Fever received more bad news. Center Jessica Davenport, who has not played this season because of a stress fracture in her lower left leg, will have season-ending surgery before the end of June. The defending WNBA champions have started 1-5 after losing Davenport, guard Katie Douglas with a bulging disc in her lower back, guard Erin Phillips with a torn right meniscus and guard Jeanette Pohlen with a torn left anterior cruciate ligament.
Erin Phillips out with knee injury
The defending WNBA champion Indiana Fever have lost guard Erin Phillips for four to six weeks with a torn meniscus in her right knee. The guard started nine of Indiana's 10 postseason games including each game in the Finals, averaging 10.1 points in the playoffs. The Fever had already announced guard Jeanette Pohlen won't be ready for Friday's season opener at San Antonio. Pohlen is still recovering from a torn ACL. Center Jessica Davenport has a stress fracture in her left leg and is expected to miss six to eight weeks.
