Jessica Davenport Sidelined 6 to 8 Weeks with Stress Fracture

INDIANAPOLIS – Jessica Davenport of the Indiana Fever has been diagnosed with a stress fracture to her left tibia and will miss 6 to 8 weeks of the upcoming WNBA season. A 6-5 center and a six-year WNBA veteran out of Ohio State, Davenport was a vital part of the Fever’s championship run in 2012. She averaged 6.7 points and 3.4 rebounds in her fourth season with the club.

Indiana, also playing without third-year guard Jeanette Pohlen who continues rehabilitation after a torn ACL in last year’s WNBA Finals, fell to San Antonio, 64-58, in Wednesday afternoon’s preseason finale. The Fever and Silver Stars will meet again next Friday, May 24, in San Antonio in the regular season opener for both teams.
