(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Fever return to WNBA action on Thursday night when they welcome the Connecticut Sun to Conseco Fieldhouse.
It has been more than a month since the Fever have played as the WNBA took a midseason break to allow players to participate in the Beijing Olympics.
The team has been practicing during the break, but their workout this afternoon will include olympians Tamika Catchings and Tully Bevilaqua for the first time since July.
Catchings was a member of the gold-medal-winning United States team while Bevilaqua won silver for Australia.
The Fever have a 12-and-14 record and own the fourth and final playoff spot in the eastern conference with eight regular season games remaining. Washington is fifth, two games behind Indiana for the final playoff berth.
