The star rookie Caitlin Clark prepares to lead her Indiana Fever in a duel against fellow rookies, Angel Reese and Kamilia Cardoso when the Chicago Sky arrives in Indianapolis. 

Slated to break a three-game losing streak, the Chicago Sky, currently (4-8), is facing off against the (4-10) Indiana Fever on June 16, 2024, at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

Will Caitlin Clark play against Chicago Sky?

Caitlin Clark is poised for action in her upcoming game against the Chicago Sky. In her previous matchup against Angel Reese's team, she recorded 11 points, 6 assists, and 8 rebounds. This season has been challenging for the Indiana Fever, with all eyes on rookie first-pick Caitlin Clark and her every move. 


The team started with five straight losses and eight in their first nine games. However, both Clark and the Fever appear to have found their stride since then, winning three of their last five games, including a 91-84 victory over the Atlanta Dream on Thursday night.

During this victory against the Atlanta Dream, Aliyah Boston matched her career best with 27 points. Kelsey Mitchell contributed an additional 24 points, while Clark claimed seven points.

This upcoming matchup will be the second time the Fever and Sky face off, following a nail-biting first meeting on June 1, which resulted in a 71-70 victory for the Fever. Cardoso made her debut in the WNBA during that game, following a shoulder injury that delayed her season start.

The Chicago Sky needs to devise a strategy to regain momentum before it is too late. Presently, on a three-game losing streak, the team suffered an 83-81 defeat in their last match, on the road against the Washington Mystics. 


Despite the loss, guard Chennedy Carter performed admirably with 16 points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal, and only three turnovers. These losing games point to an issue with scoring - currently, Chicago stands eighth in the WNBA, averaging 78.8 points per game this season.
