Sad news to the head coach of Caitlin Clark

Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever finally got the break they needed this week, taking four days off to regroup and recharge amid a challenging start to the 2024 season. Despite Clark being named the WNBA Rookie of the Month for May, she and her teammates have faced numerous frustrations to start the season, including a demanding schedule, limited practice time and intense scrutiny from opponents and the media.

“I think honestly just getting away from basketball, getting some sleep, taking care of my body,” Clark said, explaining what she did during the break before returning to practice on Wednesday, via Michael Marot of the Associated Press. “I play the point guard spot, like, I haven’t gotten a lot of practice time with my team and that’s really hard, trying to navigate an offense and you haven’t had much practice time together.”

Statistically, Clark’s start in the WNBA has been impressive. She is only the third player in league history to surpass 100 points, 30 rebounds and 30 assists in her first six games. She leads this year’s rookie class in scoring (17.6 points), assists (6.6), field goals (46) and free throws (42). She has even matched Diana Taurasi’s record for 3-pointers made (24) in this span.
