Tamika Catchings To Return

leave a comment »

Indiana forward Tamika Catchings will return on Saturday against the San Antonia Silver Stars. After missing the season first seventeen games, Indiana star Tamika Catchings will get to play in her first game of the season, after being held out with a lower back injury.

Catchings is the Fever’s five time defensive player, their MVP, and three Olympic gold medalist. Out with a back injury that sent pains down her legs, Catchings is now ready to make her debut with her team.

Catchings has also not played with any of the teams newest players with the exception of practices, now she gets the chance to play and learn from her team, without trying to take control. Coach Lin Dunn, says that she will be keeping a close eye on how Catchings does, and if she sees anything that says that she could get even more hurt, she will not hesitate to pull her out again.

Catchings injury is similar to the one former Fever player Katie Douglas had a couple seasons ago, in which she did not play but nine games the entire season. Hopefully Catchings will make a full recovery and that she will play well in this upcoming game.
